    do an ls -l to make sure it's executable (look for x in the user permissions). Assuming it is type ./<name of file>.out (you need the ./ as the current directory is not normally in your PATH). Note that it is normal to rename the compiled executable to not have the .out extension!

    If the file is not executable do chmod u+x <name of file>

    You seem very uncomfortable with the command line! Use the Finder to change the name, or type mv <full name> <new name> the full name includes all extensions (i.e. mv a.out mygreatprogram).
