# HELLO in the Pikachu Programming Language

`HELLO WORLD`

in the Pikachu Language can be quite terrifying. But it doesn't have to be.

Presented below is a significantly shorter solution to `HELLO`

that makes more use of the varied commands available. Attentive readers may recognize that this closely relates to an optimal solution to one of the puzzles in Human Resource Machine.

```
pi pi pika pi pi pika pi pikachu # Push 6 on the pi pikachu stack.
pi pi pika pi pi pika pi pikachu # Push 6 onto the pi pikachu stack.
pi pikachu pi pikachu # Multiply the top 2 elements of the pi pikachu stack.
pika pika pi pikachu # Push 2 onto the pi pikachu stack.
pi pikachu pi pikachu # Multiply the top 2 elements of the pi pikachu stack.
pi pika # Copy the top element of pi pikachu to pika pikachu
pikachu pikachu pi pikachu # Pop top element of pi pikachu and write as ASCII (H)
pika pi # Copy the top element of pika pikachu to pi pikachu.
pi pi pika pi pikachu # Push 3 onto the pi pikachu stack.
pika pi pi pikachu # Push the result of subtract the top 2 elements of pi pikachu stack onto the pi pikachu stack.
pi pika # Copy the top element of pi pikachu to pika pikachu
pikachu pikachu pi pikachu # Pop top element of pi pikachu and write as ASCII (E)
pika pi # Copy the top element of pika pikachu to pi pikachu.
pi pi pika pika pi pi pika pi pikachu # Push 7 onto the pi pikachu stack.
pi pika pi pikachu # Add the top two elements of the pikachu stack. (gets us to L)
pi pika # Copy the top element of pi pikachu to pika pikachu
pikachu pikachu pi pikachu # Pop top element of pi pikachu and write as ASCII (L)
pika pi # Copy the top element of pika pikachu to pi pikachu. (Get our L back.)
pikachu pikachu pi pikachu # Pop top element of pi pikachu and write as ASCII (L)
pika pi # Copy the top element of pika pikachu to pi pikachu. (Get our L back.)
pi pi pika pi pikachu # Push 3 onto the pi pikachu stack.
pi pika pi pikachu # Add the top two elements of the pikachu stack. (gets us to O)
pikachu pikachu pi pikachu # Pop top element of pi pikachu and write as ASCII (O)
```

Ouput

```
HELLO
```

I leave ` WORLD`

as an exercise for the reader, who is hopefully more fluent in `Pikachu`

than I am.

Note that Pikachu Language is distinct from Pikalang, which is, I hesitate to say, more reasonable for humans, and turing robots, but perhaps less convenient for the intendend audience.
