HOW TO SET PATH TO gcc in UBUNTU8.10
I am an absolute beginner in Linux environment. I have got Ubuntu8.10 loaded in my system. I know how to execute simple shell programs.
I want to compile and run c/c++ programs in this environment.
I am having gcc here. I tried whereis gcc at the shell and I got usr/bin/gcc
I do not want to tamper with the profile.
I want to set path to gcc just for this shell window.
Can you help please with exact steps to set path and compile a simple hello.cpp?
