HelloWorld: writes "Hello World!" to the console

Found in: epoc32ex\Basics\HelloWorld


HelloWorld is a very simple piece of code showing how text is written to the console. All other examples in Basics and System use the same technique.

The file CommonFramework.h contains the entry point and all code necessary to support the example itself, including the construction of the console and the cleanup stack. Putting code into a .h file may not be conventional practice, but it is useful to do so here.



Run the example either under WINS or on the ARMI platform.


Classes used

The example shows the use of the _LIT macro which is used throughout all of the examples. The macro generates a:

const static TLitC<TInt>

object and is an efficient and convenient way of generating constant literal text.

As this is a wide (Unicode) build, TLItC<TInt> is a typedef for TLitC16<TInt>.
