Variables and constants

C* has variables, declared using var or an explicit type, and constants, declared using const (possibly followed by an explicit type).

When using var or const without an explicit type, the type of the variable or constant will be inferred from the initializer.

void main() {
    int a = 1; // type is explicitly specified as 'int'
    var b = 2; // type is inferred as 'int'
    println(a + b); // prints '3'
    println(c + d); // prints '0.3'. Constants don't have to be declared before using them.

const c = 0.1; // global constant, type inferred as 'float'
const float d = 0.2; // global constant, explicit type
