By Brian J. Gough, Richard M. Stallman

This guide offers a whole instructional creation to the GNU C and C++ compilers, gcc and g++. Many books train the C and C++ languages, this publication teaches you the way to take advantage of the compiler itself. all of the universal difficulties and mistake messages encountered via new clients of GCC are conscientiously defined, with quite a few easy-to-follow "Hello global" examples. subject matters lined comprise: compiling C and C++ courses utilizing header documents and libraries, caution techniques, use of the preprocessor, static and dynamic linking, debugging, optimization, platform-specific thoughts, profiling and assurance checking out, paths and atmosphere variables, and the C++ general library and templates. includes a detailed foreword by way of Richard M. Stallman, primary developer of GCC and founding father of the GNU undertaking. all of the funds raised from the sale of this publication will aid the improvement of unfastened software program and documentation

Sample text

However, when a program crashes unexpectedly, any debugging information is better than none—so the use of ‘-g’ is recommended for optimized programs, both for development and deployment. The debugging option ‘-g’ is enabled by default for releases of GNU packages, together with the optimization option ‘-O2’. 7 Optimization and compiler warnings When optimization is turned on, GCC can produce additional warnings that do not appear when compiling without optimization. As part of the optimization process, the compiler examines the use of all variables and their initial values—this is referred to as data-flow analysis.

Here is a program which uses variable-size arrays, a GNU C extension. The array x[n] is declared with a length specified by the integer variable n. c:5: warning: ISO C90 forbids variable-size array ‘x’ Note that an absence of warnings from ‘-ansi -pedantic’ does not guarantee that a program strictly conforms to the ANSI/ISO standard. The standard itself specifies only a limited set of circumstances that should generate diagnostics, and these are what ‘-ansi -pedantic’ reports. 3 Selecting specific standards The specific language standard used by GCC can be controlled with the ‘-std’ option.

The _GNU_SOURCE macro enables all the extensions together, with the POSIX extensions taking precedence over the others in cases where they conflict.
