More excitement from the world of my computer.

Horror of horrors, I now find that my computer didn't come with gcc already! Because I was in a clicky-clicky mood, I went to synaptic package manager, and installed all the gcc- looking things.
I made some crappy C++ program, and tried to compile:

gcc test.cxx

But my computer cried:

gcc: installation problem, cannot exec 'cc1plus': No such file or directory

Boo hoo hoo. The oracle (internet) suggested:

sudo apt-get install g++

And all was merry. However, mostly I want to remind myself how to compile, since I write so little C code recently:

gcc test.c -o test

Where the last flag is to put the output in "test". Huzzah.
