-> To compile after saving and exiting the program(ESC :wq)
at command prompt the command is CC <filename>
(Your filename needs to have an extension .C)

->To run the program at command prompt you need to type
./a.out.

->To compile and run without closing your program
it is (ESC) :!CC % and (ESC) :!./a.out

If your c file is myfile.c, then

gcc -o myfile myfile.c

will produce an executable file called 'myfile'

in c++ for unix the syntax should be under g++ not gcc. the file name ended is not similar then gcc where is the file name end with *.cpp. Also as this thread is been posted twice the explanation can be found in this post.

what is the Unix OS on that system. If it does not contains gcc or g++ on it , i suggest you could report to the Sys admin of the system to get it install. Else its quite difficult to run g++ on it. ( Just a suggestion)
