If you wanted a child to say Hello to you. You would give the child a very simple instruction:

Say “Hello”.

There is a tradition to start learning programming with a program that prints “Hello, World!” on the screen.

In Vaklipi this is very easy. All you have to do is issue the command:

Say “Hello, World!”.

as shown in the following demo.

program run()
Say “Hello, World!”. Hello, World!

Run test

Run it.

There! You have just run your first program that ‘did’ anything at all to the world around it, in Vaklipi!

In the demo:

  1. The first column contains the command to run
  2. The second column contains the expected output of the command

Of course, humans have other ways of getting someone to say something. For instance, if I wanted you to say 6, I would ask you:

What is 2 * 3?

That works for Vaklipi as well.

program run()
What is 2 * 3? 6.0

Run test

In Hindi, you would say something like:

“दुनिया प्रणाम” बोलो. (“duniya pranaam” bolo.)

program run()
“दुनिया प्रणाम” बोलो. दुनिया प्रणाम
“क्या हाल है” बोलो. क्या हाल है

Run test

  1. Cool and forward looking. An intutive natural programming language can have far reaching implications to the productivity levels that can be achieved by the Business Users. Making it work in Regional Languages can add another dimension of productivity gains. Keep up the great work.
