v1.17, 28 February 1996

This document covers how to set up the GNU C compiler and development libraries under Linux, and gives an overview of compiling, linking, running and debugging programs under it. Most of the material in it has been taken from Mitch D'Souza's GCC-FAQ, which it replaces, or the ELF-HOWTO, which it will eventually largely replace. This is the first publically released version (despite the version number; that's an artifact of RCS). Feedback is welcomed.
