F# Example: Hello World

In F# programming language, a simple "hello world" program can be written by multiple ways.

Let's see the top 4 ways to create a simple F# example:

  • Simple Example using printfn
  • using System.Console
  • using open System
  • using Class
  • using Function

F# Simple Example using printfn

Output:

Hello World!

Here, printfn is a function that prints formatted output on the console.


F# Example: using System.Console

We can write the first F# program using System.Console.WriteLine() method like C#. Here, System is a namespace, Console is a class and WriteLine is a method.

Output:

Hello World

F# Example: using open System

If we write open System, it means we don't need to specify System namespace for accessing any class of this namespace like Console etc. Here, we are using Console class without specifying System.Console.

Output:

Hello World

F# Example: using class

Output:

Hello World!
