A guide on the Wu language.

Installing the Language

In order to get the Wu compiler you'll need to first make sure you've installed Rust. This can be done using the following, or by following the instructions on their official website.

$ curl https://sh.rustup.rs -sSf | sh

You can then proceed to installing the Wu Compiler through the Github repository.

$ git clone https://github.com/wu-lang/wu
$ cd wu/
$ cargo install

Now, you should see something along the lines of the following, when running the compiler.
