    Terminal Permission Question
    Hello.

    I am trying to execute C++ script, I have written it on a program called CodeBlocks and when I compile it and then run it, it has to load up onto Terminal, but when I get onto it, you have to type in a password into it.

    Is there any way to disable this and let everyone just to go on it, or anything like that? Was there a special password installed onto it that I do not know?

    Thank You

    P.s. I have set the permissions to everyone and admin and all the others can read & write on it.

    There is a difference between root and an admin account. This is why you have to authenticate to do installs etc (effectively you're sudoing the command).

    Well we have 1 account, so when you start up mac it goes onto that one, so does that mean it is the root and admin?

    I guarantee that unless you specifically enabled root and are logging on as root.. you're logging on as an admin account. Course, not having a clue what your program does/is designed to do I also have no idea why it would require a sudo in the first place.
