By Brian J. Gough, Richard M. Stallman

This handbook offers a whole instructional advent to the GNU C and C++ compilers, gcc and g++. Many books educate the C and C++ languages, this ebook teaches you the way to exploit the compiler itself. the entire universal difficulties and blunder messages encountered by means of new clients of GCC are rigorously defined, with a number of easy-to-follow ''Hello World'' examples. issues lined contain: compiling C and C++ courses utilizing header documents and libraries, caution innovations, use of the preprocessor, static and dynamic linking, debugging, optimization, platform-specific strategies, profiling and assurance checking out, paths and atmosphere variables, and the C++ general library and templates. encompasses a distinctive foreword via Richard M. Stallman, crucial developer of GCC and founding father of the GNU venture. all of the funds raised from the sale of this booklet will aid the advance of loose software program and documentation.

Abstraktion - Einfuhrung in die Programmierung

"Die Macht der Abstraktion" ist eine Einführung in die Entwicklung von Programmen und die dazugehörigen formalen Grundlagen. Im Zentrum stehen Konstruktionsanleitungen, die die systematische Konstruktion von Programmen fördern, sowie Techniken zur Abstraktion, welche die Umsetzung der Konstruktionsanleitungen ermöglichen.

Sample text

Combined with information from the symbol table produced by ‘-g’, the core file can be used to find the line where the program stopped, and the values of its variables at that point. This is useful both during the development of software, and after deployment—it allows problems to be investigated when a program has crashed “in the field”. Here is a simple program containing an invalid memory access bug, which we will use to produce a core file: int a (int *p); int main (void) { 42 An Introduction to GCC int *p = 0; /* null pointer */ return a (p); } int a (int *p) { int y = *p; return y; } The program attempts to dereference a null pointer p, which is an invalid operation.

There are several versions of this library—if you distribute executables using the C++ standard library you need to ensure that the recipient has a compatible version of ‘libstdc++’, or link your program statically using the command-line option ‘-static’. 2 Providing your own templates In addition to the template classes provided by the C++ standard library you can define your own templates. The recommended way to use templates with g++ is to follow the inclusion compilation model, where template definitions are placed in header files.

Optimization is a complex process. For each high-level command in the source code there are usually many possible combinations of machine instructions that can be used to achieve the appropriate final result. The compiler must consider these possibilities and choose among them. In general, different code must be generated for different processors, as they use incompatible assembly and machine languages. Each type of processor also has its own characteristics—some CPUs provide a large number of registers for holding intermediate results of calculations, while others must store and fetch intermediate results from memory.
