(compiler, programming)
The GNU Compiler Collection, which currently contains front ends for C, C++, Objective-C, Fortran, Java, and Ada, as well as libraries for these languages (libstdc++, libgcj, etc).

GCC formerly meant the GNU C compiler, which is a very high quality, very portable compiler for C, C++ and Objective C.

The compiler supports multiple front-ends and multiple back-ends by translating first into Register Transfer Language and from there into assembly code for the target architecture.

(GNU Compiler Collection) A popular compiler from the GNU Project that is used in Linux and Unix environments as well as in gaming and embedded platforms such as Symbian, Freescale Power Architecture and Playstation. The "cc" originally meant "C Compiler," but was changed to "Compiler Collection" after it was enhanced to support additional programming languages, including C++, Objective-C, Fortran, Pascal and Java.
