The GNU compiler collection (GCC) is a compiler collection for a number of languages including C, C++ and Fortran. It also includes associated libraries. The exact contents included in this package varies between releases, so please refer to the GCC documentation and if in doubt contact the individual centres for versions and details.

Tips and tricks

Most SNIC-clusters use Linux for their operating systems. These typically include a version of the GNU compiler collection for direct access. Since this version is typically quite old, users are highly advised to load a module with a more modern version of the GNU compiler collection.
