    Question cygwin problems

    I only just installed cygwin on my comp so that i can use it to compile and run my c programs. when i do this gcc -o helloworld helloworld.c i get the following error:

    bash: gcc: command not found

    I have made sure that im in the directory that contains the c file and it still comes up with the same error. Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.
