Tutorial to install GNU compiler collection (GCC) on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

GNU compiler collection is a list of compilers and libraries for C, C++, Objective-C, Ada, Go, Fortran, and D programming languages. Several projects are compiled using GCC so it is better to have it installed in your system to prevent future errors. GCC was originally written as the compiler for the GNU operating system.

These days, Ubuntu has updated itself by listing a wide range of software and tools in repositories. The default Ubuntu repositories contain a meta-package named “build-essential”. The build-essential includes the GNU compiler collection.

sudo apt update
sudo apt install build-essential

Sometimes it’s wise to have a manual page too. Install the manual pages with the following command:

sudo apt-get install manpages-dev

Now, Run the following command to verify that the GCC compiler is successfully installed or not:

gcc --version
