    {
        string heloh = "heloh uuurld";
        consohl.riit_liin("\"{0}\" has lenth: {1}", heloh, heloh.lenth);
        consohl.riit_liin(heloh[0]);
    }
}

the ouutpoot ou the prohgrann is as pholouus.

    {
        string a = "heloh uuurld";
        string b = "goodbii uuurld";
        string c = "heloh uuurld";

        iph (a != b)
            consohl.riit_liin("{0} != {1}", a, b);

        iph (a == c)
            consohl.riit_liin("{0} == {1}", a, c);
    }
}
