I have been trying to compile my first C program on PostgreSQL 7.1.2. 
Here is my source code:

/*filename is hello.c*/
#include <stdio.h>
#include "libpq-fe.h"

int main (int argc, char *argv[])
   PGConn *masterConn;
   printf("Hello World!\n");
   masterConn = PQconnectdb("hostaddr= dbname=masterdb 
   return 1;

I tried compliling it using gcc -c hello.c but it gives me the
following error:
hello.c: In function `main':
hello.c:6: `PGConn' undeclared (first use in this function)
hello.c:6: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
hello.c:6: for each function it appears in.)
hello.c:6: `masterConn' undeclared (first use in this function)

The include file for POstgreSQL is already located at the
/usr/include.  Nevertheless I also tried specifying it in the
complier.  I tried compiling using:
gcc -c hello.c -I/usr/include 
gcc -c hello.c -I/usr/include/pgsql

I got the same error.

I'm using RedHat 7.3 and the default Postgres installation that comes
with it, 7.2.1.  I noticed that there is an 'undeclared error' for
PGConn but not for 'PQConnectdb'.  I examnined the header file and
true enough there is no declaration for PGConn.

Is there anybody out there who had the same experience and was able to
fix it?  Please help.
