So simple, so wrong

as newbie like me could do, i wanna do a simple C program that could print from console.

- debian sarge with installed libcupsys2-dev
- all the build-essential tools installed

Writing my small file printme.c as the API doc:

#include <cups/cups.h>

printf("The default destination is %s\n", cupsGetDefault());

and compiling it with:

gcc printme.c -o printme -lcups

as well documented in API doc, i can't compile due the following error:

"error: syntax error before string constant"

for the last line, the "printf" statement.

What's up? What's wrong? Help!
