If you install build-essential you wil get an ANSI standard C and C++ compiler.

You can use the following source code (save file as hello.c) :

#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
  printf("Hello world\n");
  return 0;
}

Hello,

One more hint: At your place I would also consider installing an IDE.
I personally have NetBeans, and though I don't like too much their last strategic curve,
they have c/c++ imbedded. There is one NetBeans version in Ubuntu Software center,
and you can find two more recent versions of it at http://netbeans.org/

Hope this helps.
Enrico
