Using C with UNIX

A little knowledge is necessary before you can write and compile programs on the UNIX system. Every programmer goes through the same three step cycle.

  1. Writing the program into a file
  2. Compiling the program
  3. Running the program

During program development, the programmer may repeat this cycle many times, refining, testing and debugging a program until a satisfactory result is achieved. The UNIX commands for each step are discussed below.
