    (From http://www.linuxdoc.org/FAQ/Linux-FAQ/x1731.html)

    Most Linux software is written in C and compiled with the GNU C compiler. GCC is a part of every Linux distribution. The latest compiler version, documentation, and patches are on ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/.

    if that doesn't help try looking through this site...

    I got the 2x Mandrake 8 iso's (install + extra-goodies). When you do the install, you have the choice to install whatever packages you want. You can then browse through the 'development' section and take a look at what you want.

    I have the following languages/compilers/interpreters installed from the mandrake cd's:
    • C/C++
    • Perl
    • Ruby
    • Python
    • Java (I'm pretty sure I got this one from one of the CD's)


    I do most of my coding in Vi and my compiling in cc/gcc.
