    Run and execute are the same
    Compiling is completely different - it's the step before run or execute

    Though you do run the compiler, but that's not the same as running your program.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    compiling changes the code you've written into machine code, and the exacutable reads that machine code.
    I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left.
