Write a program that outputs
Hello World, from line X!, where
X is the line number, in the source code, of the actual print statement itself.
- In this context, we want the first line number of the statement which outputs the string to be displayed to
- You should avoid simply searching through your source code as a string (either file or quine) to find the line number
- If any additional whitespace or statements (which do not interrupt the flow of the code) is added to the source code, it should be reflected at run-time (after compiling if applicable)
If provided by the language, you may use exceptions/stack traces to accomplish this goal. Try your best to use code that is portable across different systems/implementations, but note that this is not a requirement. Using defined variables like
__LINE__, although allowed by the rules, are discouraged.
