HELP!! Compiling on C


HELP!! Compiling on C (I think I may of placed this in the wrong forum b4, sorry!)

anywayz

I just have a quick question regarding compiling of C, I believe it simple (well not to me), and any help would be much appreciated.

Basically I am a beginner at C programming language and I am having difficult at compiling any code.

At the moment I placed the following code onto notepad and saved it as samp.c:

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
printf("This is output from my first program!\n");
return 0;
}


The problems is when I try to compile the code whether through cc or gcc, by doing gcc samp.c –o samp.exe I always get the following response:

“No such file or directory”

How do I overcome this problem ?? (also on my computer I have several dives)

er, linux doesn't use exes. Try it without the .exe bit.

Have you tried specifying the complete path to sample.c?
Your program looks fine, and sample.exe should run fine too allthough I don't think you really need the .exe extension. Unless I'm mistaken that's something Windows needs to recognize it as a "executable" file.
You could also do "gcc sample.c -o sample.bladiebla" and run it just fine.
Just a thought.

I tried it, but 'its like' it can not Recognise the directory...which are one of two

(1)H:\my documents\samp.c
(2)H:\samp.c

does the C language come with a default directory like Javas J Builder ???

Assuming you are using linux, you need to mount the windows partition and use "tab-completion" to change into the correct directory. Linux does not use drive letters.

You definitely do have gcc installed, and within your path ? (What happens when you just type gcc <enter> into a shell ?)

perfect_circle, considering he was trying to compile it as an exe and now mentions H:\ I'd guess not!
killos, NOTE the PENGUINS!

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
