The Definitive Guide to GCC is a comprehensive tutorial and guide to using GCC, the GNU Compiler Collection. GCC is quite simply the most-used and most powerful tool for programmers on the planet. GCC has long been available for most major hardware and operating system platforms and is often the preferred compiler for those platforms. As a general-purpose compiler, GCC produces higher quality, faster performing executable code with fewer bugs than equivalent offerings supplied by hardware and software vendors. GCC, along with GNU Emacs, the Linux operating system, the Apache web server, the Sendmail mail server, and the BIND DNS server, is one of the showpieces of the free software world and proof that sometimes you can get a free lunch.

In The Definitive Guide to GCC, authors William von Hagen and Kurt Wall teach you how to build, install, customize, use, and troubleshoot GCC 3.2. This guide goes beyond just command-line invocations to show you how to use GCC to improve the quality of your code (with debugging, code profiling, and test code coverage), and how to integrate other GNU development tools, such as libtool, automake, and autoconf, into your GCC-based development projects.

About the Author:

Kurt Wall first touched a computer in 1980, when he learned FORTRAN on an IBM mainframe of forgotten vintage; things have only gotten better since. A professional technical writer by trade, Kurt has worked for companies as diverse as Virtual Solutions Inc. to Caldera Systems, where he created the documentation for the OpenLinux eServer and eDesktop and associated tools. These days, Kurt works for TimeSys Corporation in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he writes all of the Linux documentation for TimeSys's embedded Linux products. Kurt is the author of Red Hat Linux Networking and System Administration, Linux Programming Unleashed, Second Edition, and Linux Programming by Example, and he's the coauthor of Red Hat Linux Weekend Crash Course, Third Edition. He has contributed to over 15 other Linux-related books covering topics such as system administration, performance tuning, clustering, and programming.

Review:

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This book is a user’s guide for some of the more commonly used GNU compilers and their collection of supporting tools. ... This would be useful for more advanced users. ... It also provides a good starting point for anyone that needs more information than what is in this book." (J. Miller, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (2), February, 2008)
