Can you explain your question in more detail please, because I don't really understand it. I understand that you've written a program in C and then I don't really understand the problem. Do you not know how to compile your software, or how to run it, or both?

So basically you're wondering how to build your software, then install it as a package? for compiling, you should familiarize yourself with the likes of gcc, ld, make, etc. These are the standard compilation/linking tools used by most GNU/Linux distributions.

As for compiling it into a package, you'd need to be familiar with how your distribution packages software (e.g. Debian and derived distros use the .deb format, Red Hat-like distros use the .rpm format, etc.), and the tools used for each.
