I am a really new user and trying to see how the whol thing works. I have installed the most recent version and trying to compile a well known program "hello world" as follows:


#include <stdio.h>

int main { 
   printf("hello world \n");
   return 0;


However, I am getting error messages following the command "gcc hello.c -o hello" as detailed below:


C:\Users\ZBA\Documents\Wenzhong Jiang\Prgs>gcc hello.c -o hello
hello.c:3:10: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before '{' token


My question ist simple, what the compiler ist complaining about and how can I fix it ?


Thank you very much and best regards.
