/** The `App` trait can be used to quickly turn objects
* into executable programs. Here is an example:
* {{{
* object Main extends App {
* Console.println("Hello World: " + (args mkString ", "))
* }
* }}}
* Here, object `Main` inherits the `main` method of `App`.
*
* `args` returns the current command line arguments as an array.
*
* ==Caveats==
*
* '''''It should be noted that this trait is implemented using the [[DelayedInit]]
* functionality, which means that fields of the object will not have been initialized
* before the main method has been executed.'''''
*
* It should also be noted that the `main` method will not normally need to be overridden:
* the purpose is to turn the whole class body into the “main method”. You should only
* chose to override it if you know what you are doing.
