$gcc new-sum.c 
$rm a.out 
$gcc new-sum.c -o new-sum
$./new-sum
./new-sum [-s] [-m] integer ...
-s sums all the integers
-m multiplies all the integers
This program takes any number of integer values and either add or multiply them.
For example: ./new-sum -m 5 5 5
$./new-sum -m 3 3
Total: 9
$./new-sum -s 3 3
Total: 6
