The C Compiler (cc)

The simplest method is to type


cc testprog.c

This will try to compile testprog.c, and, if successful, will produce a runnable file called a.out. If you want to give the runnable file a better name you can type


cc testprog.c -o testprog

This will compile testprog.c, creating runnable file testprog.
