  • The GNU Compiler Collection is a compiler system produced by the GNU Project supporting various programming languages. GCC is a key component of the GNU toolchain. The Free Software Foundation distributes GCC under the GNU General Public License. GCC has played an important role in the growth of free software, as both a tool and an example. Originally named the GNU C Compiler, because it only handled the C programming language, GCC 1.0 was released in 1987 and the compiler was extended to compile C++ in December of that year. Front ends were later developed for Objective-C, Objective-C++, Fortran, Java, Ada, and Go among others. GCC has been ported to a wide variety of processor architectures, and is widely deployed as a tool in the development of both free software and proprietary software. GCC is also available for most embedded platforms, including Symbian, AMCC, and Freescale Power Architecture-based chips. The compiler can target a wide variety of platforms, including video game consoles such as the PlayStation 2 and Dreamcast.
