c compiling using clang

Hi Arnab,

The ‘%’ is the UNIX (FreeBSD) prompt, shown in examples in text books. Do not type it in. Depending on your shell, and whether or not you are running as root, you might have $ or # as your prompt instead, or even something fancier depending on how your profile is setup.

Just type “cc filename.c” (not the quotes, they are there to highlight what to type). This will produce a file called a.out. You run that by typing “a.out” (again, do not type the quotes). If you want to compile your program to a named file you would type “cc -o myfile filename.c”, and to run the program just type “myfile”.
