To write and compile a C program in Termux, you will need to install a C compiler and text editor. The
gcc the compiler is commonly used to compile C programs and the nano text editor is a good choice for writing and editing code in Termux.
Here is an example of how to write and compile a C program in Termux:
- Install the
nanotext editor by running the following command:
pkg install gcc nano
- Create a new file for your C program using the
nanotext editor. For example, to create a file named “hello.c”, you can use the following command:
This will open the
nano text editor with an empty file named “hello.c”.
- Type the C code for your program into the file.
- Save the file and exit the text editor by pressing, then
Y, and then
- Compile the C program using the
gcccompiler. For example, to compile the “hello.c” program, you can use the following command:
gcc hello.c -o hello
This will compile the “hello.c” program and create an executable file named “hello”.
- Run the program by typing its name and pressing
Enter. For example, to run the “hello” program, you can use the following command:
This will execute the “hello” program and display the output.
You can use the
gcc compiler with various options to customize the compilation process. For example, you can use the
-o option to specify a different name for the executable file, or the
-O option to enable optimization. To view a full list of available options, you can use the
gcc --help command.
