    I've split this from your previous question since it was off-topic bump.

    You don't compile header files as such, you include them in other source files (which are then compiled).

    func.h - tells other source files what goodies exist in func.c
    func.c - contains all the details

    main.c would have
    #include "func.h"
    Finally, to build everything, you would do
    gcc main.c func.c
