how do I compile the program, say I have a file called test.c, which has:

extern void print_int(int x);
extern void print_str(char x[]);

and the definition of both function is located at a file called print.c

I tried gcc -ansi -Wall test.c testing

but it doesn't work

You should use

gcc -ansi -Wall test.c print.c -o test

to specify both files when compiling.
