I've been trying to use the gcc compiler without success.

Asked by Francisco Assis dos Santos

Motherboard : Intel Dual Core
Operational System : Linux (Ubuntu )

Problem:: I have been trying to compile a small C training Source Program , without success , and I've always been informed that there are neither input files nor any other files or directory to be processed. I am afraid I'm making a repeateadly mistake. So, I describe as follows, the way I'm trying to compile my program: gcc capote.c -o tulipa. My C program is written as follows:

                    #include <stdio.h>

                     main ()
                         printf ( " Tentando escrever com a linguagem C" );


I hope these informations are good enough to furnish you some clues about the problem. Thank you very much for the valuable concern in helping us.

Did you install the build-essential package?

Ignore post #2 should have read...

Open a terminal CTRL+ALT+T Enter

make sure you are in the same directory as the source file and enter
ls -la; gcc -o tulipa capote.c

Post all the output here

also main should return an int. I doubt this is the reason for your problem though you could try this modified code

#include <stdio.h>

int main (void)
    printf ( " Tentando escrever com a linguagem C" );
    return 0

Not a fix but the full error messages may indicate what's going wrong
