- You can make an infinite loop with for(;;) or while(1) loop.
- If given Linux (OS), then you have to manually compile and execute the codes. (a) compile : "gcc program.c -lm -o wxyz"
[gcc is the compiler that will compile program.c, by linking math library (-lm), to produce an executable of your choice
"wxyz"], (b) execute : ./wxyz.
- If you skip "-o wxyz" part, then default executable generated after compilation will be "a.out". Then you have to do
./a.out for execution.
