Visual Studio 2010 includes a new programming language, F#. F# is a multiparadigm language that supports functional programming in addition to traditional object-oriented programming and .NET concepts. F# is a functional programming language that treats an assignment as an topic. To assist you with programming, the F# language provides many already-created functions, referred to as built-in functions. One of the built-in functions of F# is named printf. Although we will see various examples of using that function, we can first indication that printf is used to present a value, such as a word or a sentence to a user. To use it, follow this formula:
printf "Something to show" printf ("Something to show") printf "Something to show"; printf ("Something to show");
After printf, you can include something in double-quotes or the double-quoted value inside of parentheses. You can end the whole statement with or without a semi-colon. Here is an example:
printf ("Welcome to the wonderful world of functional programming!");
let msg = "Hello, F#!" System.Console.WriteLine(msg)
F# is a productive, typed functional and object-oriented language for the .NET platform.
