hello: Print "hello, world", the traditional type.
$ hello --traditional
try on your machine

The command "hello --traditional" is used to run the program "hello" in traditional mode. The "hello" program is likely a simple program that displays a greeting message.

The "--traditional" flag is an argument passed to the "hello" program that modifies its behavior. In this case, it indicates that the program should run in traditional mode, which can mean different things depending on the specific program. However, in general, traditional mode often refers to running a program with its original or default settings, without any modifications or enhancements.

So, when you execute the command "hello --traditional", it will run the "hello" program using the traditional mode settings, which may result in the display of a greeting message in a traditional or default way.
