Good thing somebody knows what a "tornado" is.
But what does a modem have to do with the
subject of this list, which is cross-compiling
with gcc?

...which is commonly called running the program.  This
is a silly quibble.  You can't run a binary file either,
you have to load it into the RAM with an OS...

Sakku's English is not the problem, there are native
speakers who mangle it worse in email lists.
The problem is that the question is too vague,
lacking context, and probably in the wrong mailing list.

Fine advice.  But you can't expect people on a mailing
list to teach you CS-101.  To learn to run a C program
buy a book on programming.  Briefly it's done thus:

  $ cc prog.c -o prog
  $ ./prog

While we're discussing the proper form of a posting,
I'll mention that just a week ago this appeared on
this list:
