I would get a script. It is .c I would compile it with gcc and it would flash a bunch of error messages like <Unable to find #include H> And that's no fun since it's every script I try I get a bunch of error messages.

Can you post the *.c file pls.
#include H looks a little bit strange to me.

Which distribution do you have? Are you sure you have the kernel headers and (g)libc development package installed? Without those almost every software will fail to compile.

#include H?
seems funny. Either you do not have packages(headers & libraries ) installed or you are using uppercase.
c is case sensitive (a!=A), so make sure that you type everything in lowercase.
Also format is #include <filename.h>, where filename is the header you want included.
