Hi all, I am trying to write some small programs in C for the first time. The problem is:
When I have compiled the C source code to obtain an executable file I cant run it by simply typing its name when im in the directory where it is stored. I can only get it to execute using ./[some file name]. Is there anyway to get the executable to run by simply typing the name of the file when Im in the directory.
Example hello is an executable file that can only be run by typing ./hello even when Im in the directory where it is stored but I cannot simply type hello
