Getting started coding

You're now ready to start programming with Concurnas!

Start the Concurnas REPL:

C:\concurnas-1.14.019>conc
Welcome to Concurnas 1.14.019 (Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM, Java 11.0.5).
Currently running in REPL mode. For help type: /help

conc> 

The Concurnas REPL is a great tool for getting started with programming in Concurnas before moving on to implementing projects with it.

VIDEO: Getting Started with Concurnas is a nice introduction to the Concurnas REPL, concc and conc command line tools for compiling and executing code written in Concurnas

The first time Concurnas is executed, or when a new JVM environment upon which it's being executed is detected, an 'installation' will take place wherein Concurnas will set itself up to execute efficiently upon said JVM environment by caching a copy of the JDK. This can take up to a few minutes to complete.
