GNU gcc 3 compiler

Hi, while installing Manrake linux 9.0 I saw an "ad" displaying the GNU gcc compiler. How do I come upon using this? I have it installed, but i dont know how to make the compiler come up.

compiler : software that translates human readable code to code the machine can read and execute, it's not an IDE

You can use any editor like vi or emacs, or any XWindow editors, in order to create a C or C++ program(If you know the syntax).
Let us take that you have named it as simple.c, then you must enter
gcc simple.c -o simple
in order to use the complier. Here, the -o option is for giving a name to the resultant binary file.
