    To compile a program with GCC do this:

    gcc [file] -o [output-file-name]

    (If you want to compile a C++ app use g++)

    To access the file type this command:
    ./[output-file-name]
    (Inside your directory) - DON'T just type the filename because IT WILL give an error (I'm not sure why).

    (Where [output-file-name] is the name of the output file {- if this is not specified it defaults to a.out} and [file] refers to the source to be compiled).

    That *should* work.

    I had the same trouble - if that doesn't work keep asking and give any error messages which you recieve.

    Hope this helps.
