To create a Python Hello World program using a variable, you can follow these steps:
- Open a text editor or an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) of your choice.
- Create a new Python file and save it with a .py extension, such as “helloworld.py”.
- In the editor, type the following code:
message = "Hello, World!" print(message)
- Save the file.
- Open a command prompt or terminal window and navigate to the directory where the Python file is saved.
- Run the file by typing “python helloworld.py” (without quotes) and press Enter.
- The output should display “Hello, World!” as the value of the variable ‘message’.
Here’s an explanation of the code:
- The first line creates a variable called ‘message’ and assigns it the value “Hello, World!”.
- The second line uses the ‘print’ function to display the value of the ‘message’ variable on the screen.
By using a variable to store the message, you can easily modify the message to be displayed without having to change the ‘print’ statement.
