Compiling C++ Programs

Compiling C++ Programs

Some web hosts offer gcc compiler on their servers.

The C and C++ compilers are integrated. Both process input files through one or more of four stages: preprocessing, compilation, assembly, and linking. Source filename suffixes identify the source language, but the name that you use for the compiler governs default assumptions.

You can get further information on the compiler from your telnet prompt by typing:

man gcc

This command will return full syntax and options for the compiler.
