comment C Programming on command line
The .o extension is for object files, which are compiled but not linked (gcc -C, I believe). Your command compiles and links, so just use -o name

comment Prompt for sudo password and programmatically elevate privilege in bash script?
@wrongusername install sudo, it's much better than using su. But if you really want, probably exec su -c "$0" "$@"
