    Help with red hat 9


    I am new to linux and I was wondering if someone may answer a question for me. I need to know how to run a program in c or python ( with the extension .c or .py ) Thank you for any help you may be able to offer me. I am running red hat 9 btw.

    (Specifically, I am trying to run openrpg http://openrpg.com but I seem to be clueless in such matters..)

    You don't run a C program, you compile it first and then you run it. Are you sure that you're taking the right approach at all? Is there a file called "Makefile" in the same directory? In that case, run make to compile the program.
