Expanded and revised in light of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 4 release in April 2005, this book offers detailed coverage of GCC's somewhat daunting array of options and features and includes several chapters devoted to its support for languages like C, C++, Java, Objective-C, and Fortran.
Though targeting beginner and intermediate developers, this book goes well beyond basic compiler usage, combining instruction of GCC's advanced features and utilities (authconf, libtool, and gprof) with key coding techniques, such as profiling and optimization to show how to build and manage enterprise-level applications.
This is an enormous market. GCC is the defacto compiler collection for hundreds of thousands of open source projects worldwide, a wide variety of commercial development projects, and is the standard compiler for academic programs.

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 (Red Hat, ISBN: 0-76453-632-X), Linux Programming Unleashed, Second Edition (Sams, ISBN: 0-67232-021-5), Linux Programming by Example (Prentice Hall, ISBN: 0-13142-964-7), and the coauthor of Red Hat Linux 7.2 Weekend Crash Course (Wiley, ISBN: 0-76453-642-7). He has contributed to over 15 other Linux-related books covering topics such as system administration, performance tuning, clustering, and programming.
William von Hagen holds degrees in computer science, English writing, and art history. William has worked with UNIX systems since 1982, during which time he has been a system administrator, systems programmer, software developer, development manager, computing facilities operations manager, writer, documentation manager, and (now) content manager. William has written a number of books, including Linux Filesystems (Sams, ISBN: 0-67232-272-2), Installing Red Hat Linux 7(Sams, ISBN: 0-67232-084-3), SGML for Dummies (Hungry Minds Inc, ISBN: 0-76450-175-5), and contributed to writing Red Hat 7 Unleashed (Sams, ISBN: 0-67231-985-3).
Most recently, Hagen coauthored Mac OS X Power User's Guide (Muska & Lipman/Premier Trade, ISBN: 1-93184-144-6) with Brian Proffitt. William has written articles and software reviews for publications including Linux Magazine, Linux Format (UK), Maximum Linux, Mac Tech Magazine, Mac Home Magazine, and Mac Directory, and he has written extensive online material for CMP Media, Linux Planet, and Corel.
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)
