Here is a novice question.

I wrote a small c program (Test.c) and used gcc to compile it. An executable called "test" was created. But when I tried to execute it (by writing "test" and pressing enter) nothing happened (I got message "Command not found) when I tried to run it. I have allowed the file to be used as an executable. Also clicking the executable in file management causes nothing to happen. What goes wrong?

If you are doing something like this:

gcc test.c -o test
you can do this to run it:

./test
