Read along to understand how GCC works, find out what all those other programs in the toolchain directory do, and learn some tips and tricks to become more comfortable with most indispensable tool in your project.

will produce a file compile—commands that the user can mark as executable and run a line at a time to pinpoint the exact cause of a problem.

GCC is a deceptively powerful, complex tool. The developers have created software that “does the right thing” with minimal information from the user. Because it works so well, users frequently forget to spend the time to learn about GCC's capabilities. This article scratches the surface; the best advice is to read the documentation and invest a little time each day to learn how this tool always can do more than expected.

Tabela's picture

Geçtiğimiz yerlerde her üç adımda bir gördüğümüz Tabela lar caddeleri renklendiren unsurlardır. Tabela lar caddeleri renklendirirken aynı zamandada insanların aradıkları yerleri bulmalarında son derece yardımcıdırlar. Geçen bir tatil yöresinde gezerken çok renkli, ışıklı çok güzel bir Tabela gördüm ve bayıldım.
Resmini çekeyim şu Tabela nın derken fotoğraf makinemin pili bitmiş ve çekemedim. Önümüzdeki sene gidebilirsem yine aynı şekilde bu Tabela nın resmini çekmeyi planlıyorum kimbilir belki önümüzdeki sene kısmet olur...

With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Webinar
Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
