Most likely you are typing the command name incorrectly or you need to
specify the path to the command (since the path to it is not currently

Most likely you will need to just type './a.out' to specify that the
command is in the current directory:

[dpk@foo:~] gcc test.c 
[dpk@foo:~] ./a.out 
Hi, world!
