    Question Compiler

    I have Linux running on a 32MB computer.
    I have Win200 on a256MB computer.
    The Win2000 computer has the Miracle C compiler.
    The Linux computer has a compiler-but I do not know which one(i do not know how to find out).

    The following program,runs ok with Miracle C but does not run on the Linux Computer.Kindly advise.
    Program#1
    -----------------------------
    /* Averages five float values entered by the user. */

    #include <stdio.h>

    float v, w, x, y, z, answer;

    float average(float a, float b, float c, float d, float e);

    main()
    {
    puts("Enter five numbers:");
    scanf("%f%f%f%f%f", &v, &w, &x, &y, &z);

    answer = average(v, w, x, y, z);

    printf("The average is %f.\n", answer);

    return 0;
    }

    float average( float a, float b, float c, float d, float e)
    {
    return ((a+b+c+d+e)/5);
    }

    -----------------------------------
    Many Thanks

    Did you just take the compiled file from windows and put it in Linux and try and run it? If you did, it doesn't work that way. The compiler grabs certain resources from the operating system.

    You will have to take your code and compile it in Linux.

    Most Linux boxes come with cc/gcc. Go to the shell or a xterm and type: man cc or man gcc. Read about using them.

    Good luck

    Actually I compiled the code in Linux using cc average.c -o average
    .I don't know what could be the problem.

    try typing dos2unix <filename>.c

    then type gcc <filename>.c

    see what happens then.

    > dos2unix <filename>.c

    In Solaris it's dos2unix source.c dest.c - Is it different in Linux?

    In a console try :

    gcc -v <ENTER>

    so you will know if your compiler is gcc.

    Try too "cc -v"

    cc is a a symlink to gcc.


    Then type :

    gcc -o myprogramname myfilename.c <ENTER>

    If your file is average.c you can for example type :

    gcc -o average average.c <ENTER>

    You get then an executable called average.

    Try it with:

    ./average <ENTER>

    It will run.

    I pasted your code into a text file named "test.c" and was able to compile it (in Linux) with the command:

    gcc -o test test.c
