Question about linux compiling with GCC
So, I have researched online, and looked at FAQ's, and nothing is giving me what I need. I am a windows / linux user. On windows, i have a very nifty program called "Bloodshed Dev-C++" which allows me to write the code, compile it, and run it all from one easy to use window. I am trying to move everything to linux, and am a little familiar with the OS, but cannot seem to figure out how to create, and compile, and finally run a C++ / C program. Here is what I thought was the correct way, and dident work.
wrote the basic C++ Hello World program, saved and exited pico.
(here it made a project.o file, which was what i thought was the executable, but when i do this next step nothing happens.)
can anyone help me out? Maby a simple step by step set of instructions as how to write/compile/run a C/ C++ program?
