    You could compile and link them.

    You need a compiler and a linker. For Windows I suggest DevC++ (IDE and compiler/linker) or Borland 5.5 Command Tools (compiler/linker)...
    [C++]
    IDE: DevC++ 4.9.9.2 (GCC 3.4.2)
    2nd compiler: g++ (GCC 3.4.3/4.0.0)
    3rd compiler: Borland 5.5
    [C#]
    IDE: Microsoft Visual C# Express 2005
    2nd IDE: SharpDevelop
    2nd compiler: csc in Command Prompt
    .NET Framework: 2.0
    [PHP]
    Core: 5.1.0 beta 3
    IDE: PHPEdit
    2nd IDE: Notepad
    Favourite extensions: exif,gd2,mysql
    Favourite PEAR packages: DB, XML_RSS, ID3
    Favourite databases: SQLite, MySQL

    If you've ever run one of your programs, you've created an EXE. What compiler are you using, and under which OS?

    Well then, open a Windows explorer window, and navigate to where you saved your source file. In the same directory, there will be an EXE with the same name as your source file. So if you saved hippo.cpp, there will be a hippo.exe. Double-click on it to run it. Or give it to your friends.
