Default I am having problems compiling Hello World program

HI, I Am new to the Linux OS and I would like someone to help me solve a problem that I am having.

I have written the first program in the book Begining inux Programming 3rd Edition. The source code is:

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
    printf("Hello World");
It's a very simple program which I saved in my home directory as hello.c.

However, when I compile this program at the bash command line I get the following error message:

charles@linux:~> gcc -o hello hello.c
hello.c: In function ‘main’:
hello.c:6: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of built-in function ‘exit’

Is there something wrong with the program or could I be missing some libraries or development tools?
