Is your installation correct?

You have not made a DOS executable.  DOS only runs .com and .exe files
(and also .bat files).  It doesn't know the fist thing about C / C++
source code.  You need to compile the source code into an .exe file
before you can run it.

Do you know how to run the compiler, gcc?

  That's not bad code, I'm trying to confuse would be hackers.
        Fast, small, easy to understand -- pick any two!
Is it morning already?    I hate when they fix a bug that I use.
