Hello,

Well, I hate to have to admit it, but the reason Ez-GCC didn't work
is because the user (ME) is an idiot that didn't read the manuals.
I always tell my students to read the documentation before asking
questions and now I fall prey to the same trap.  

I usually use the Unix version of gcc and for it all that is
required to run my code is 

	gcc -o myfile myfile.c
	myfile

So I assumed the same for DOS.  However, as was pointed out by many
kind users, for DOS

	gcc -o myfile myfile.c
	coff2exe myfile
	myfile

is required.  Everything works fine now.  I'll try to finish reading
the docs before I jump to asking other questions.  Thanks for all
the help.

Byron Newberry
