Compile and link it.

What did you use to write the .pas file?

If it's the same as TP7, just hit F9 and that should compile it.  You should probably take a look at some of the help files before you go much further.  Learning how to properly use the IDE before trying to use it is always a good idea.

As MannSoft says, F9 compiles. To make an exe (rather than have the pascal program run inside the TP environment), you have to set the target of the compilation to disk. This option is found under Compile | Destination. Selecting it will toggle between Memory (runs inside the IDE) and Disk (compiles "somthing.pas" into "something.exe").

in Dev-Pas just press on the compile button, the program will compile your code and afterwards link it to the exe file.
in tubo pascal you have to do that in seperate steps.
