GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) is a set of programming language compilers developed by GNU. It is a set of free software distributed under the GPL and LGPL licenses. It is also a key part of the GNU project and is a standard compiler for Unix-like and Mac OS X operating systems. GCC (especially the C compiler) is also often considered the de facto standard for cross-platform compilers.
GCC was formerly known as GNU C compiler because it can only deal with the original C language. Later, the ability to handle C++ was added and later became available for languages such as Fortran, Pascal, Objective-C, Java, and Ada.
