I watched a video lecture today that introduced C and things like how to make a C program that will run in Linux. I followed the steps given and now I'm stuck with a bit of a problem.
I created my C file (HelloWorld.c) and used the command
gcc -o HelloWorld HelloWorld.c to compile the file, both of these steps were successful. Afterwards I checked to make sure that HelloWorld had been created by using the command
ls, and it had been. However, when I use the command
HelloWorld, which is supposed to run the program, I get an error that says
HelloWorld: command not found.
In the video lecture the professor did mention that this worked for 32-bit systems and I'm using a 64-bit system. Perhaps this could be the problem?
EDIT: Also in the video lecture the professor mentioned that when I use the command
ls I should see
HelloWorld*. I see only HelloWorld (without the star).
