This category is for GCC, the GNU Compiler Collection. Originally, GCC meant GNU C Compiler. Then C++ was added, and then other languages that do not start with the letter "C". Clearly, the acronym needed a new semantics, so it was renamed. GCC is developed and maintained as Free Software (Open Source) by the Free Software Foundation (FSF), GNU project, for programmers, and the GNU system. GCC has many front ends: C, C++, Objective-C, Fortran, Java, Ada; libraries for libstdc++, libgcj, more.
