To compile and run a single src file:

Code:
$ ls
src.c
$ gcc src.c -o executable
$ ./executable
To compile and run multiple src files:

Code:
$ ls
src1.c
src2.h
src2.c
$ gcc src1.c src2.c -o executable
$ ./executable

Rather,

Code:
gcc -Wall -Wextra src.c -o executable
Code:
gcc -Wall -Wextra src1.c src2.c -o executable

- more errors can be caught earlier in such a manner.
