GNU Compiler Collection – Delta


The GNU Compiler Collection (usually shortened to GCC) is a compiler system, produced by the GNU Project supporting various programming languages. GCC has been adopted as the standard compiler by most modern Unix-like computer operating systems with GNU/Linux. GCC has been ported to a wide variety of processor architectures, and is widely deployed as a tool in commercial, proprietary and closed source software development environments.

Vendor :GNU Compiler Collection.

Architecture :x86_64

Newly Installed GCC: 4.8.2new

setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /opt/sourceInstallations/gcc_4_8_2_release_build/lib64

For Bash shell users:

export PATH=/opt/sourceInstallations/gcc_4_8_2_release_build/bin:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/sourceInstallations/gcc_4_8_2_release_build/lib64
