more smali syntax and running smali files

there are some examples of smali syntax written by the author of smali/baksmali JesusFreke here: most are rather technical, but still illuminating.

here's one that i modified slightly that shows a basic hello world app with a standard main method. also, in the comments you will see a way to quickly compile and run a smali file. this is sometimes quite useful in testing your code:
.class public LHelloWorld;

# Ye olde hello world application
# To assemble and run this on a phone or emulator:
# java -jar smali.jar -o classes.dex HelloWorld.smali
# zip classes.dex
# adb push /data/local
# adb shell dalvikvm -cp /data/local/ HelloWorld
# if you get out of memory type errors when running smali.jar
# give java more memory with -Xmx512m, like this:
# java -Xmx512m -jar smali.jar HelloWorld.smali

.super Ljava/lang/Object;

.method public static main([Ljava/lang/String;)V
    .registers 2

    sget-object v0, Ljava/lang/System;->out:Ljava/io/PrintStream;

    const-string v1, "hello,world!"

    # combine executing with adb shell commands and console output
    # and you have a very quick way to test code
    invoke-virtual {v0, v1}, Ljava/io/PrintStream;->println(Ljava/lang/String;)V

.end method
