Example from hello-world:
PROGRAM Hello #USE ioconv SEQ write.full.string(screen,"Hello World")
Example from the Hello World Collection:
PROGRAM Hello -- Hello world in Occam #USE ioconv SEQ write.full.string(screen,"Hello World!")
Example from Wikipedia:
ALT count1 < 100 & c1 ? data SEQ count1 := count1 + 1 merged ! data count2 < 100 & c2 ? data SEQ count2 := count2 + 1 merged ! data status ? request SEQ out ! count1 out ! count2
