ubuntu 8.04.1 LTS help

I Have installed ubuntu 8.04.1 LTS in my frnds computer.
After installing Some of my friends said that C/C++ compilers where inbuilt in linux OS.
So we tried to compile some C and C++ programs but non of it was compiled.😔
Why what is wrong with this ubuntu 8.04.1 LTS?
Do i need to install C/C++ compilers?
If so plz say how to install ?
plz give me clear instruction...

I bet you are looking for the traditional header files and you don't seem to find it 😀
For this you need the old gnu libraries and it may get hectic, so better search for new syntax for using the macros and header files, or if possible you can see the new gnu compiler version documents, and i think the version should be 4.2.2 or above !!

Have you installed gcc and the core libraries? Try sudo apt-get install gcc

It might have or it might not. I do not use ubuntu distros so can't comment but someone will certainly answer that. What is more probable is that you went for a default selection of packages and missed out on gcc.
Try 'man gcc'. If gcc is indeed installed, this would open the manual for it. Else look in the rpm folder of the distro. You will find the gcc compiler somewhere. Try installing that. command would be rpm -ihv [filename]. (flags can be altered to suit your choice if you wish).
