You told it "Compile a C program" without telling it which
program to compile!

The syntax for compiling a simple C++ program is
    gxx hello.cpp -o hello.exe
("C++compile hello.c and-make-an-exe-called hello.exe")

Read the README.1ST file for more information; then
Read Me Third:

Then, if you still have problems, you may find a solution
in the official DJGPP FAQ list:
