GCC is a free collection of compilers that provide the user with a
powerful tool for translating C, C++ and Fortran source into fast
ARM assembler that is suitable for execution on RISC OS.

GCCSDK is a portable build environment for creating ARM executables
to be run natively on RISC OS. The build environment is designed to
be hosted on a Unix-like system, such as GNU/Linux, FreeBSD or Solaris.

This is the first proper release of GCC since 2.7.2.1 back in 1997
though there have been experimental versions of 2.95.2 available since
1999.

The compilers are large programs and will require at least 6Mb of free
memory to execute, so you will either require a RiscPC or a an 8Mb machine.
See http://hard-mofo.dsvr.net/gcc for download information.

We consider this to be the best version of GCC for RISC OS and recommend
that all existing users upgrade to it.  The compiler toolset should be
considered stable.

Future development will be directed towards improving UnixLib's conformance
to the C99 standard and upgrading the compiler to GCC 3.1.
