creating zombie process

Hi All,

Doing practice and creating a zombie process getting the below error.

[root@seRver3 tmp]# cat zomibe.c
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <unistd.h>

int main ()
{
pid_t child_pid;

child_pid = fork ();
if (child_pid > 0) {
sleep (60);
}
else {
exit (0);
}
return 0;
}
[root@seRver3 tmp]# ls -l zomibe.c
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 205 Jun 19 23:46 zomibe.c
[root@seRver3 tmp]# source zomibe.c
-bash: zomibe.c: line 5: syntax error near unexpected token `('
-bash: zomibe.c: line 5: `int main ()'
[root@seRver3 tmp]#

Thank you!! 

I skipped the step to compile the c program. Now it is working fine.

1. created zombie.c file.

2. Installed the GCC package.

100% the solution.

Sourcing in the Linux shells, only works for files written in the language of that shell.
