I have installed GSL 1.5 on my Apple G4 running OS

in the GSL manual, but I cannot get the executable to
run.  For some reason, the executable is being saved
under the "root" user, which of course denies me
access since I am not logged in as root, and even when
I logon as root, (i.e., sudo ./example.o) - this
returns the message, "Command not found".  This is
interesting in light of the fact that the command 'ls
-l' shows the example.o file in the working directory.

In Unix files ending on .o are not executables but object files (try to run "file example.o"). I would guess that the executable you're looking for is either called a.out or example.
