do this file, call it "wozzle.c"

Code:
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
     printf("Hello Wozzle\n");
}
then do

Code:
make wozzle
and you will have a program called wozzle

Whhhhhhaaaatttt???
make only works if you create a makefile, bigearsbilly.
to compile wozzle.c type:

Code:
gcc -o wozzle wozzle.c

Since when?
you do NOT need a makefile to run make.

observe:
Code:
/export/home/billym
billym.primadtpuat>mkdir test
billym.primadtpuat>cd test
billym.primadtpuat>make test
make: *** No rule to make target `test'.  Stop.
billym.primadtpuat>touch test.c
billym.primadtpuat>make test
cc     test.c   -o test
make: cc: Command not found
make: *** [test] Error 127
billym.primadtpuat>export CC=gcc
billym.primadtpuat>make test
gcc     test.c   -o test
Undefined                       first referenced
 symbol                             in file
main                                /export/home/billym/lib/gcc-lib/sparc-sun-solaris2.6/2.7.2.3/crt1.o
ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to test
make: *** [test] Error 1
why don't you try it?

Just to prove it:

Code:
billym.primadtpuat> print "#include <stdio.h>\nmain()\n{\nputs(\"hello wozzle\");\n}" > wozzle.c;make wozzle;wozzle
gcc     wozzle.c   -o wozzle
hello wozzle
