What would you like to do?
from kotlin source to java execution of the generated bytecode

Write the simplest Kotlin file, and name it Main.kt:

fun main(args: Array<String>) {
    println("Hello world!")

Then compile the Kotlin file with kotlinc, which runs the Kotlin compiler

❯ kotlinc Main.kt

Then run the generated MainKt.class bytecode with

❯ java -cp ~/.sdkman/candidates/kotlin/current/lib/kotlin-stdlib.jar:.  MainKt

(where ~/.sdkman/candidates/kotlin/current/lib/ is my actual path to the Kotlin lib folder).

And you'll get:

Hello world!
