Genie: Intro to Genie: String Math

completed by: Michal Proszek

mentors: AJ Williams, Amaury Medeiros, Arc Riley, David Czech

Genie is a relatively new language similar to Python but compiles to C. We use it because its easy to learn, works well with many of our libraries, and is not itself a runtime dependency. This beginner task is to build a basic familiarity with the language.

Using the documentation, our codebase as working examples, and other students for help - build a small Genie-based application which accepts two numbers as command-line arguments, multiplies them, prints the results as a string akin to "2 times 3 is 6", and exits.

Optional: print the results using only words (no numerals), eg, "two times three is six".

While working on this task you should join and remain in #CopyleftGames on Freenode to get help, feedback, and guidance from mentors and other developers.
