Network A problem regarding compiling C prog. in lynux ...

Hi mates,
I am using Mandrake 7.1. I am trying to compile my file let is say Firstc.c file. It compiles it without any problem and creates the a.out file too. But when i am trying to execute the a.out file it brings the error: "bash: a.out: command not found!" ...
i don't know what is the problem?

regards abdul;Smilie

your current directory is not in your path.

if you type echo $PATH you will notice it does not contain the location of a.out.

now if you were to type ./a.out your command would execute.
