    Unhappy Urgently in need of help...!!!

    i was only first introduced to c programming 2 days ago n nw i hv assginment to hand-in already.

    i was confused about the file saving of high-level language program.

    for example: what provide access for system programs to edit, compile and so on?

    and a high-level language program is saved on disc as what file?

    before linking, a machine language program is save as what file?

    is it an object file?

    and after linking, the machine language is saved as what file again?

    is it an .exe file?

    urgently in need of help...
    anyone...??

    The program to edit is any text editor.
    To compile you need a compiler.

    Most C - compilers like *.c files.
    before linking, a machine language program is save as what file?
    Most linkers like *.o files.
    is it an object file?
    It is called so
    and after linking, the machine language is saved as what file again?

    is it an .exe file?
    On windows it should be. On *nix systems they have no extension by default.

    Find someone in real life that knows these things, and ask to be shown.
    You need to understand very elementary concepts before being able to receive help from us, without wasting both ours and your time.
    Code:
    ...
        goto johny_walker_red_label;
    johny_walker_blue_label: exit(-149$);
    johny_walker_red_label : exit( -22$);
    A typical example of ...cheap programming practices.

    Source code (.c, .cpp, etc )

    >before linking, a machine language program is save as what file?
    object file (.o, .a, .obj, etc )

    >and after linking, the machine language is saved as what file again?
    Executable file (.exe)

    You should use English for your postings
    (d b al wil etc are not English words)
    And give more descriptive name to your posts

    Help and Urgent do not tell much about your problem
    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.
