The GNU C compiler -- a full featured ANSI C compiler, with support for K&R C as well. GCC provides many levels of source code error checking traditionally provided by other tools (such as lint), produces debugging information, and can perform many different optimizations to the resulting object code. This contains the back end for C++ and Objective C compilers as well. This release is an alpha copy based off of the development version of gcc. It has been patched to provide optimizations for the pentium processor.
