Thread: .c files

  1. #1

    .c files

    I doing some security testing and I see a lot of files on the internet that have .c extensions (like chargen.c)
    They look very much like scripts.
    Can anyone tell me if those are really scripts and if they are then how I can run them?
    thx.

    Re: .c files

    Those are source code files for the C programming language. To run them, you first need to compile them:

    gcc file.c -o whatever
    ./whatever

    However, I would not just run programs you download off the Internet without knowing what they do.
