Using the GNU Compiler Collection
The GNU C compiler is an integral part of the GNU system and was initially written by Richard Stallman. At first it only compiled C code. Later a group of volunteers started maintaining it and GCC gained the ability to support different languages such a C++, Fortran, Ada and Java. It was then renamed to GNU Compiler Collection to signify this change. In this article we shall look at mainly the C language compiler.
