Other web sites about GNU: The GNU Project is an attempt to develop a complete free and open source operating system, as well as a suite of useful programs, initiated by Richard Stallman and the Free Software Foundation. The GPL, LGPL, and the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL) were originally developed for the GNU Project, although, they are also now used for many other projects too.

The GNU Project includes the bash shell, GNU Binary Utilities (binutils), the GNU C Library (glibc) the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC), and the GNU Core Utilities (core). Additionally, an operating system kernel, known as GNU Hurd is under development, but since it is not yet finished, most GNU users use the programs with the Linux operating system. Versions of many of the GNU utilities are also available for other operating systems including Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, and Solaris. The majority (but not all) the copyrights in the GNU project are held by the Free Software Foundation, and as already mentioned, most parts of the project are distributed under the GPL or LGPL licenses, although some other free/open-source licenses are used for some parts of the project.

Here are some books about GNU:

Product Description:

The utility simply known as make is one of the most enduring features of both Unix and other operating systems. First invented in the 1970s, make still turns up to this day as the central engine in most programming projects; it even builds the Linux kernel. In the third edition of the classic Managing Projects with GNU make, readers will learn why this utility continues to hold its top position in project build software, despite many younger competitors.The premise behind make is simple: after you change source files and want to rebuild your program or other output files, make checks timestamps to see what has changed and rebuilds just what you need, without wasting time rebuilding other files. But on top of this simple principle, make layers a rich collection of options that lets you manipulate multiple directories, build different versions of programs for different platforms, and customize your builds in other ways.This edition focuses on the GNU version of make, which has deservedly become the industry standard. GNU make contains powerful extensions that are explored in this book. It is also popular because it is free software and provides a version for almost every platform, including a version for Microsoft Windows as part of the free Cygwin project. Managing Projects with GNU make, 3rd Edition provides guidelines on meeting the needs of large, modern projects. Also added are a number of interesting advanced topics such as portability, parallelism, and use with Java.Robert Mecklenburg, author of the third edition, has used make for decades with a variety of platforms and languages. In this book he zealously lays forth how to get your builds to be as efficient as possible, reduce maintenance, avoid errors, and thoroughly understand what make is doing. Chapters on C++ and Java provide makefile entries optimized for projects in those languages. The author even includes a discussion of the makefile used to build the book.

Product Description:

C Programming in easy steps, 5th edition has an easy-to-follow style that will appeal to anyone who wants to begin programming in C, from programmers moving from another programming language, to the student who is studying C programming at school or college, or to those seeking a career in computing who need a fundamental understanding of procedural programming.

C Programming in easy steps, 5th edition begins by explaining how to download and install a free C compiler so that you can quickly begin to create your own executable programs by copying the book's examples. You need have no previous knowledge of any programming language so it's ideal for the newcomer to computer programming. Each chapter builds your knowledge of C.

C Programming in easy steps, 5th edition contains separate chapters on the major features of the C language. There are complete example programs that demonstrate each aspect of C together with screenshots that illustrate the output when that program has been executed. The free, downloadable sample code provided via the In Easy Steps website all has coloured syntax-highlighting for clearer understanding.

By the end of this book you will have gained a sound understanding of the C language and be able to write your own C programs and compile them into executable files that can be run on any compatible computer.

Fully updated and revised since the fourth edition, which was published in April 2012 – now covers the GNU Compiler version 6.3.0 and Windows 10.

  • Used Book in Good Condition
Product Description:
This manual provides a complete tutorial introduction to the GNU C and C++ compilers, gcc and g++. Many books teach the C and C++ languages, this book teaches you how to use the compiler itself. All the common problems and error messages encountered by new users of GCC are carefully explained, with numerous easy-to-follow "Hello World" examples. Topics covered include: compiling C and C++ programs using header files and libraries, warning options, use of the preprocessor, static and dynamic linking, debugging, optimization, platform-specific options, profiling and coverage testing, paths and environment variables, and the C++ standard library and templates. Features a special foreword by Richard M. Stallman, principal developer of GCC and founder of the GNU Project. All the money raised from the sale of this book will support the development of free software and documentation.
