MUMPS (Massachusetts General Hospital Utility Multi-Programming System), or M, is a general-purpose computer programming language that provides ACID (Atomic, Consistent, Isolated, and Durable) transaction processing. Its differentiating feature is its "built-in" database, enabling high-level access to disk storage using simple symbolic program variables and subscripted arrays, similar to the variables used by most languages to access main memory. The M database is a key-value database engine optimized for high-throughput transaction processing. Read more on Wikipedia...

Example from the web:
label1 ; This is a label write "Hello World !",! quit
Example from Riju:
main() write "Hello, world!",! quit
Example from hello-world:
w "Hello World",!
Example from the Hello World Collection:
; Hello World in Mumps-M w !,"Hello World"
Example from Wikipedia:
GTM>S n="" GTM>S n=$order(^nodex(n)) GTM>zwr n n=" building" GTM>S n=$order(^nodex(n)) GTM>zwr n n=" name:gd" GTM>S n=$order(^nodex(n)) GTM>zwr n n="%kml:guid"
