Let me guess...

you named it "test", right? Then when you run "test" "nothing" happens?

two things:
1. there's already a program named test, which displays no output,
it merely has an exit status.
2. for a program in your current directory, run it with a preceding "./",
e.g., "./test"--because "." is not in the path (and shouldn't be).
