    Man pages are not easy manuals to read, they are more like reminders for
    things you already know. It does say what you want, but not in simple terms.

    I think there are IDEs that will call the compiler for you. Try kdevelop.

    I don't know if there is a howto or book that guides people on how to make
    programs in linux.

    An old one that comes with the distro:

    /usr/share/doc/Books/lpg-0.4pdf: The Linux Programmers Guide

    But it is not what you need now.

    Isn't that the same as info gcc? Horrible for learning.

    I've no idea. I never use info on religious grounds

    So if you're looking for tutorials then google gcc tutorials throws up

    http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~beechung/ref/gcc-intro.html
    http://www.network-theory.co.uk/gcc/intro/
    http://www.riscos.info/index.php/GCC_tutorial

    and lots of others.

    I'm really more looking to learn the language than to make any practical applications at this point. My preference, then, would be something as simple as possible.

    Oh my, I missed everything on the second page when I replied. An update: I've written, compiled, and executed the "Hello World!" program, and the compiler seems to work fine.

    Thank you all for your help, I could not have done it without you!

    I thought the OP was trying to learn C++ not C.
    So I recommend this book for C++ as an introduction
    Stanley B. Lippman: C++ Primer
