If you have C compiler (cc or gcc) installed, try

$ gcc file.c

This will create the binary, a.out, which you can execute by
$ ./a.out

I do not have GCC; I am using CC and want to build .EXE not .O file.

Where are you planning to execute it ? Windows or *nix ? a.out is the executable. It is not an object file.

SunOS doesn't have ".exe". SunOS isn't Windows.

The above instructions should work, using cc instead of gcc. If they don't, please be more specific about what you are doing!
