how to compile??
i've got a C file I want to compile, the readme says to type

CC filename.C

but when I type that in Konsole it says CC No command or something. Do I need to download GCC ? I'm running winlinx 2003, thanks!

cc stands for c-compiler. Most often however linux distros are shipped with the gnu c-compiler leading to a binary name of gcc.
Sooo you should try:

gcc filename.c

btw: a .C (as opposed to .c) file is c++ or am i wrong?

so alternatively you should try g++.

if those do not work, you might have to dl gcc.

thanks for your help, but that hasn't worked :/ So I guess i'll have to download GCC, thanks anyway.

It should be on your installation CD(s). Which distro are you using?

to be honest, i'm not really sure, i'm new to all this linux stuff. I just downloaded the smaller sized non supported copy of winlinux 2003.

i've just downloaded gcc-3.1.tar

and i was wondering if anyone could give me any pointers on how to install gcc, thanks.
