  • An introduction to GCC by Brian Gough (Network Theory Ltd, UK, 2004, free on-line version): A short but good introduction into the GNU compilers gcc and g++. The book was finished in 2004 with GCC version 3.3.x, some examples must be updated to reflect the updates in the current GCC version (4.4.4 in Ubuntu 9.04), and trivial spelling errors could have been eliminated (usigned for unsigned). It is not a tutorial for C or C++, but by introducing the compilers (gcc and g++) and useful tools (gprof, gcov, etc), the tutorial refreshes the basics of C and C++, and touches many aspects of the C/C++ compiling in a understandable way.
