    Question compile question

    hi, i have just started to learn c, here is my problem (its not really a problem) when i write my code in gedit save the file as hello.c for instance i then go to terminal and type cc hello.c this works but i get a_out (again not an issue) so i type cc -o hello hello.c now i get the desired hello executable so my question is this,

    can i add an alias to my terminal session to make cc hello.c preform the same as cc -o hello hello.c ?

    Just search for "alias" and do a bit of reading.
    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.

    If you create Makefile in the same directory,
    CC      := gcc
    CFLAGS  := -W -Wall -O2
    LD      := $(CC)
    LDFLAGS :=
    PROGS   := hello
    .PHONY: all clean run
    all: clean run
    	rm -f $(PROGS)
    %: %.c
    	$(CC) $(CFLAGS) $^ $(LDFLAGS) -o $@
    run: hello
    	@echo Running ./hello:
    you only need to type make to compile and run your program. Just note that when you create the above file, the indentation must be a TAB character, not spaces.
