Thanks for the tip, but it did not work. Sorry. :-(
I am trying to run an executable whose source code was
written in C. All it does is to open a file, write integers
from 0 to 100 into this output file, close it and exit. A very
simple and prosaic test.
Nonetheless, I get a "0" (zero) as exit status when I execute
the command you suggested. That means, as fas as I know,
that the execution had been well-succeeded. But I cannot find
the output file anywhere on the hard disk, however. What the
problem might be?
Thanks once again for your help.
