Thanks for your reply. I happen to have a reason for doing so. In my case the program's function is to operate on a data file. Currently I have to keep on deleting the existing data file and copying the new data file to the position pointed at by the program. A simple menu choice would have made life simpler for me.

In a Microsoft Windows environment when a file needs to be opened,
is it possible for either gcc or g77 to interactively prompt for file
as windows programs do?
No, it's not possible and frankly I don't see any reason why they should.
gcc and g77 are compilers and not some interactive program like an editor.
