FatalEagle is sitting in his computer science class, on his laptop. Clearly, he is not paying attention in this situation. However, he gets called on by his computer science teacher to do some problems. Since his computer science teacher did not expect much from FatalEagle, he only needs to output the string Hello, World!. However, simple for you and I may not be simple for FatalEagle, so please help him!

FatalEagle's teacher is clever, and is able to determine that FatalEagle didn't write a solution himself if it uses advanced concepts like strings or numbers. Since you don't want to get caught helping FatalEagle, you must make your code look like his!


There is none.


Hello, World!

Sample Output

Hello, World!

    Are we not allowed to use ( or )? Also, we aren't allowed to use actual String variables right?

    Just to point out:

    As a C programmer, we use printf to print. However, cuz "%d" has "", it will not pass.

    Do not discuss solutions in comments... This spoils the problem for other users. If you REALLY want to spoil a problem for yourself, you may do so in private. Not that it is encouraged, mind you.

    Does the String in public static void main (String[] args) count?

      Only string and number literals count ("'1234567890)
