Use 'g++' instead of 'gcc' when compiling C++ code; it'll tell the
linker to link with the correct libraries for C++ code 
('iostream' or 'stdc++', I believe).

Now for the next error you'll probably experience.

"test doesn't produce any output".

That's right... if you call it with simply "test", you'll start
"/bin/test" instead of "./test".

Hope this helps,
