well pop into command line and just open a blank file with a text editor such as vim, so you will type :
vim filename.c
and then do your stuff, then press esc and type :wq and save and quit the file
then you will type
gcc -o testprogram filename.c
and if you don't use the -o filename part, and end up just typing gcc filename.c then the executable file will still be made, but it will be named a.out ...
and it will make the executable file and then you will type
./testprogram
to run it
