problem with compiling a c program
I installed gcc in my suse 10 sp1. Just to give a try, I wrote a simple hello world program. I tried compiling it by giving

cc hello.c

It showed nothing. Then when I gave a.out it says

a.out: command not found.

Plz help me with this..

The compiler is called "gcc", not "cc", although there may be an symlink from cc to gcc. Probably the current working directory is not in the PATH, so you need to explicitly say "use a.out from the current directory", like this:
