The GNU hello package serves as an example of GNU package distribution and code. It also prints a nice greeting in a variety of languages.
The "Hello, world!" program is the classic beginner's programming task. The GNU version takes this a step further by processing its argument list to modify its behavior, by supporting internationalization, and by including a mail reader; it's a true demonstration of how to write programs that do these things.
