To compile C programs, you use gcc
  gcc -o myProgram myCode.c
this will compile myCode.c into myProgram. For programs with
many files it is usually easier to use the "make" utility.
Running "make" reads the file Makefile and uses that as rules
to build the program.

To unzip tar.gz files, do
  tar -xzvf foo.tar.gz
You can leave out the -v (ie, just tar -xzf) if you don't want
to see the files list as you unpack.
