The Hello World Collection

This is a website featuring the "Hello World" program in over 200 programming languages ("Hello World" became famous as the first example in The C Programming Language (that version is here).

Someone pointed out that Monad (or MSH as we tend to refer to the language) was not on there, so I submitted it. There was a bit of debate over what program to submit and finally we decided on the most basic one:

"Hello World!"

which works because in Monad objects that reach the end of the pipeline are output (the program above is really an object -- the System.String initialized to "Hello World!" -- sent down the pipeline, except there is nothing after it on the pipeline, so it is sent to the default outputter, which displays it to the console).
