then i have drag and drop on "vi" some program of wiki dictionnary to
test that it work #include <stdio.h>
#include "math.h"

int main(void)

but when I do ./prog
it return to me
./popo: line 4: syntax error near unexpected token `(' ./popo: line 4: `int main(void)'

I tried to search with google the problem it tell me that i must put "return 0 ;" at the end but .. I have the same error i dont understand .

Paul has described below one way to compile your program and run it.

The reference to "return 0;" means that a correct C program would include that as the last line of main():

int main(void)
   return 0;

Leaving it out probably won't prevent your program from running, but it may not correctly indicate its success to the operating system.

Thank you very much for help , sam ...

Try this:

$ mv prog prog.c
$ make prog
$ ./prog
