How to Implement the Solution

Now, let's see how we can print a simple "Hello World" in Koka.

Just like many other programming languages, the main function is the starting point of the code execution. To print, we use println, a built-in method that prints a given string or variable to the console.

Like many of the high-level language implementations in this series, this one wasn't too bad. Wanna try it out? Check out this online Koka editor.
