Example source code (HelloWorldOTB.cxx):

//  The following code is an implementation of a small OTB
//  program. It tests including header files and linking with OTB
//  libraries.

#include "otbImage.h"
#include <iostream>

int main(int itkNotUsed(argc), char* itkNotUsed(argv)[])
  using ImageType = otb::Image<unsigned short, 2>;

  ImageType::Pointer image = ImageType::New();

  std::cout << "OTB Hello World !" << std::endl;

  return EXIT_SUCCESS;

//  This code instantiates an image whose pixels are represented with
//  type \code{unsigned short}. The image is then created and assigned to a
//  \doxygen{itk}{SmartPointer}. Later in the text we will discuss
//  \code{SmartPointer}s in detail, for now think of it as a handle on an
//  instance of an object (see section \ref{sec:SmartPointers} for more
//  information).
