They asked you to differentiate the name of the c file (script.c) and the executable you compiled, like: gcc script.c -o helloworld, by doing that you are compiling the script.c file into a language understandable by the computer.
They choose to name this executable “helloWorld”
Since, you have done an “executable”, then you read this executable by ./"name of my executable"
Hey, so you have to type "gcc script.c -o hello World " (without the quoatation marks) in the compiler (bash. right sight) and then Run the script. For the second task you need “./helloWorld”. Hope it helps
I’m trying to solve the problem (that I thought I understood), but I can’t get anything correct from any kind of way I try. And when I click on View Solution to see what I’m doing wrong it appears nothing on the correct side.
For this particular exercise, “View Solution” isn’t going to be helpful. The solution only shows the script.c file, whereas the exercise doesn’t involve editing the file. The exercise involves typing in commands in the bash terminal which aren’t shown by the “View Solution” option.
What EXACTLY are you typing in the terminal?
To share your attempted solution in a forum post, you can EITHER use the </> button to type in the commands you have tried entering in the terminal (the </> option helps preserve formatting of code in forum posts) OR you could take a screenshot (of the commands you have entered in the bash terminal) and upload it via the Upload button (The </> button will be simpler and less time consuming).
This will help clear up the nature of the mistake in your attempted solution.
