    GCC compile c program

    I know there is tons of posts on this but I still cant seem to solve my problem. I am brand new to programming and im trying to run my test.c in GCC.

    my version is
    Charles-Aweidas-MacBook-Pro:~ charlesaweida$ gcc --version
    i686-apple-darwin10-gcc-4.2.1 (GCC) 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5664)
    Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

    I am running the file off my desktop


    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    int main(void){
            printf("hello world\n");
    	return 0;
    }
    when i compile it I get a large 'blank space' and thats it.
    Charles-Aweidas-MacBook-Pro:~ charlesaweida$ gcc /Users/charlesaweida/Desktop/test.c
    Charles-Aweidas-MacBook-Pro:~ charlesaweida$

    can anyone help me get up and running?
    i installed Xcode, the comand line tool compiles just fine but i cant get it to compile in the terminal, i wonder if it cant find stdio.h???

    hmmmmm

    Can you explain "blank space" meaning. The command you showed for compilation is returning the prompt as expected. Kindly explain your problem more !

    The compiler doesn't give me errors, but it does print "hello world"

    Your test.c compiled successfully, without any errors. There should be a file in /Users/charlesaweida/Desktop named a.out. This is your program, and it should print "hello world" like it's supposed to. Nothing to worry about

    try to compile your code with this sintax:

    Code:
    root@invecta:~# gcc -o test test.c
    if no error message shows, thats mean you successfully to compile that code. To run your result, try to type ./test
