To compile and link the above program:

First compile the program using cc (eg. cc test.c).
This produces a .o file.

To create an executable out of the .o, you must use the linker to link in
the runtime and library routines.  Invoke link then issue the commands:

If all goes well, link will now ask for the name of the executable
you wish to write.  If there are still undefined externals, link will
tell you and return the ">" prompt.

Hope this helps!
