    Try whereis gcc. If it returns /usr/bin/gcc, it's installed. Otherwise search your Red Hat cdroms; mkdir /cdrom; mount -t cd9660 /dev/cdrom /cdrom && find /cdrom -name "*gcc*"

    Code:
    cat > foo.c
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main()
    {
      puts( "hello world!" );
      return 0;
    }^D
    gcc foo.c -o foo && ./foo

    you should do if you installed it on setup.

    to test you do type

    which gcc

    this will tell you if you have it, if you do it'll tell where it is installed.

    To use it you have to be in konsole, when you are there you can use it from any directory. Simply type

    gcc -Wall filename -o program-Name

    "-Wall" turns all warnings on
    "-o program-Name" program-Name becomes the executable
    "filename" can be a list of C files

    if you don't use -o option, then it compiles the program to the default "a.out"

    to run the program type:
    ./program

    the dot-slash specifies the program is in the current directory

    hope this helps

    redhat does bundle gcc with it. as a matter of fact, it changed gcc 2.95.3 and renamed it 2.96RH.

    howdy,
    you might try this.
    open a new file in emacs name it hello.cpp
    code the "hello world" thing
    go to the "tools" menu and select "Compile"
    then open a terminal window and (like sugested before) type ./hello.
    if this works your on your way.
    on my RH 7.2 install the compiler defaults to gcc 2.96 and has all of the libraries pathed in corectly.

    M.R.
    I don't like you very much. Please post a lot less.
    Cheez
    *and then*
    No, I know you were joking. My point still stands.

    that may not always work. on my emacs the compiler is not pre-determined. just run "gcc -v" at the command prompt and it should tell you something about gcc (or the fact that it doesn't exist.)

    gcc and g++ come nearly with all dist.(rehat suse mandreke....) use man gcc/g++ to learn how it works
