    Im new a linux programming

    Is 'gcc' the same as 'gc ansi' when compiling a program?

    I'm not familiar with 'gc ansi'. However, using the -ansi flag with gcc (gcc -ansi) disables certain GNU features and makes the compile ANSI compliant. GCC C introduces certain new keywords to the C language (among some other things), and using the -ansi switch disables these gcc specific features. Check the gcc(1) manual page for more details.

    Hmm...I don't think gc ansi is the same, although I have never heard of it. It sounds to me like some kind of coding library or something....

    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!
