Creating a Program

I took a programming class as one of my electives in school this year and I've become extremely interested in programming now. I've been having a blast since day one. I've gotten really good at it and getting better everyday. I was just curious to know how you turn your program (the source code) into a working application. What do I mean by this? I mean like any other program you install on windows. What I have in mind is something like this: I make a program in the language of my choice, compile it, and have it so that I can simply run the compiled program directly from say, my desktop (such as clicking on an icon (a shortcut) on my desktop that runs the program without going through the compiler). Thanks for any help.

you can not run the uncompiled program without loading the IDE in which it was created.

It would seem to me that if you are <b>"really good at it and getting better everyday"</b> that you would know the answer to such a simple question.

I don't know what language you are programming in, but most <b>COMPILERS</b> have an option to create an executable file. Have you tried that??

"create an executable file" = compile.

Thats exactly my point. He is a "good" programmer, but doesn't know how to "compile" a program for use without a "complier".
