Top Forums UNIX for Dummies Questions & Answers creating executable for every C file Post 302138152 by porter on Saturday 29th of September 2007 03:41:36 PM
I may be missing the point on your question but C is a compiled language.

To run it you have to:

(a) compile the C source into object files
(b) link the object files with libraries to produce the executable

once you have done that you can run the executable as many times as you like, and you can call it whatever name you like.

It is also compiled specific to the computer's architecture, so you can't expect 386 code to run natively on an UltraSparc. Similarly it is operating system dependent.

A kernel is at the heart of the Linux OS; and this kernel acts as an interface between the user and underlying hardware.

isalist - display the native instruction sets executable on this platform SYNOPSIS
isalist prints the names of the native instruction sets executable on this platform on the standard output, as returned by the SI_ISALIST command of sysinfo(2). The names are space-separated and are ordered in the sense of best performance. That is, earlier-named instruction sets may contain more instructions than later-named instruction sets; a program that is compiled for an earlier-named instruction sets will most likely run faster on this machine than the same program compiled for a later-named instruction set. Programs compiled for instruction sets that do not appear in the list will most likely experience performance degradation or not run at all on this machine. The instruction set names known to the system are listed in isalist(5). These names may or may not match predefined names or compiler options in the C language compilation system, ATTRIBUTES
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | |Availability |SUNWcsu | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ SEE ALSO
