Free Software Redistributors Donate
The French redistributor PACT has agreed to donate $1.00 for each GNU/Linux
CD that they sell.
Red Hat Software has agreed to donate $1.00 to the FSF for every copy of Red
Hat Archives sold. They have also added a GNU logo to the back of that CD
with the words "Supports the Free Software Foundation".
The SNOW 2.1 CD producers added the words "Includes $5 donation to the FSF"
to the front of their CD. Potential buyers will know just how much of the
price is for the FSF & how much is for the redistributor.
The Sun Users Group Deutschland has made it even clearer: their CD says,
"Price 90 DM, + 12 DM donation to the FSF." We thank them for their
contribution to our efforts.
Kyoto Micro Computer of Japan regularly gives us 10% of their GNU-related
Mr. Hiroshi, Mr. Kojima, and the other authors of the `Linux Primer' in Japan
have donated money from the sales of their book.
Infomagic has continued to make sizable donations to the FSF.
At the request of author Arnold Robbins, Specialized Systems Consultants, Inc.
continues to donate 3% of their profits from selling `Effective AWK
Programming'. We would also like to acknowledge the many SSC authors who
have donated their royalties and fees to the FSF.
In the long run, the success of free software depends on how much new free
software people develop. Free software distribution offers an opportunity to
raise funds for such development in an ethical way. These redistributors
have made use of the opportunity. Many others let it go to waste.
You can help promote free software development by convincing for-a-fee
redistributors to contribute--either by doing development themselves or by
donating to development organizations (the FSF and others).
The way to convince distributors to contribute is to demand and expect this
of them. This means choosing among distributors partly by how much they give
to free software development. Then you can show distributors they must
compete to be the one who gives the most.
To make this work, you must insist on numbers that you can compare, such as,
"We will give ten dollars to the Foobar project for each disk sold." A vague
commitment, such as "A portion of the profits is donated," doesn't give you a
basis for comparison. Even a precise fraction "of the profits from this
disk" is not very meaningful, since creative accounting and unrelated
business decisions can greatly alter what fraction of the sales price counts
as profit.
Also, press developers for firm information about what kind of development
they do or support. Some kinds make much more long-term difference than
others. For example, maintaining a separate version of a GNU program
contributes very little; maintaining a program on behalf of the GNU Project
contributes much. Easy new ports contribute little, since someone else would
surely do them; difficult ports such as adding a new CPU to the GNU compiler
or Mach contribute more; major new features & programs contribute the most.
By establishing the idea that supporting further development is "the proper
thing to do" when distributing free software for a fee, we can assure a
steady flow of resources for making more free software.
Help from Free Software Companies
When choosing a free software business, ask those you are considering how
much they do to assist free software development, e.g., by contributing money
to free software development or by writing free software improvements
themselves for general use. By basing your decision partially on this
factor, you can help encourage those who profit from free software to
contribute to its growth.

Major Changes in GNU Software and Documentation
* Hurd Progress (Also *note What Is the Hurd::.)
We have made three test releases of the Hurd, the most recent being 0.2.
The Hurd is currently much more reliable than previously, and various
utilities and file system translators, such as an FTP file system, have
been written that take advantage of the Hurd's unique design.
One way for people to help out is to compile and run as much third-party
free software as they can; in this way we can find bugs and deficiencies
with some rapidity. Volunteers with a PC are therefore eagerly sought to
get the 0.2 release and compile their favorite Unix programs and games.
Daily snapshots of the Hurd sources are now available for those that
want to see the latest (non-stable) version; see the Hurd page on the
FSF Web site, `', for more information.
* New Source Code CD! (*note July 1997 Source Code CD-ROMs::.)
We are releasing the July 1997 (Edition 10) Source Code CD-ROM this
month. Once again, it is a two disk set. It includes several new
packages: `aegis', `cook', `guavac', `lesstif', `prcs', `rsync', `swarm',
& `vera'. On the CD-ROMs are full distributions of X11R6.3,,
Emacs, GCC, and current versions of all other GNU Software. *Note GNU
Software::, for more about these packages.
* New/Updated Manuals since Last Bulletin (*note Documentation::.)
Since the last bulletin, we have published several updated editions of
our manuals (note the price changes): `GNU Emacs Manual', revised for
GNU Emacs version 20, now $30; & `Texinfo Manual', for version 3.11 of
Texinfo, now $25. We hope to have the following available very soon:
`GNU Tar manual', first time in print, freshly reorganized and
rewritten, $20; `GNU Software for MS-Windows and MS-DOS', a book and
CD-ROM set with a variety of GNU software compiled for MS-DOS and
Windows 3.1/95/97/NT, $35 ($140 for corporate orders). Watch our Web
site, `', for announcements of these
* Fonts freed
A free commercial-quality set of the basic 35 Postscript Type 1 fonts is
now finally available. The copyright holder of these fonts, URW++
Design and Development Incorporated, has decided to release them under
the GPL. Each font includes `.pfb' (outlines), `.afm' (metrics), and
`.pfm' (Windows printer metrics) files. The fonts are compatible with
Adobe Type Manager and with general Type 1 manipulation tools, as well
as with Ghostscript and other Postscript language interpreters.
The fonts are available in `ghostscript-fonts-4.0.tar.gz' on the usual
FTP sites.
* DDD now works with LessTif (Also *note GNU Software::.) Release 2.1.1
of DDD, the Data Display Debugger, now works with LessTif, a free Motif
* Give to GNU the United Way!
As a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, the FSF is eligible to receive
United Way funds. When donating to United Way, one can specify that all
or part of the donation be directed to the FSF. On the donor form,
check the "Specific Requests" box and include the sentence, "Send my
gift to the Free Software Foundation, 59 Temple Place, Suite 330,
Boston, MA 02111." We especially appreciate the donations from Microsoft
matching the United Way donations of their employees. Also see *Note
Donations Translate Into Free Software::, and *Note Cygnus Matches
* Tapes and MS-DOS Diskettes No Longer Available from the FSF
We no longer offer tapes or MS-DOS diskettes due to very low demand.
* GNU Software Works on MS-DOS (Also *note GNU Software::.)
GNU Emacs 19 and many other GNU programs have been ported to MS-DOS for
i386/i486/Pentium machines. We ship binaries & sources on the *Note
Compiler Tools Binaries CD-ROM::.
* The FSF Takes Discover
The Free Software Foundation now accepts the Discover card for orders or
donations. We also accept the following: Carte Blanche, Diner's Club,
JCB, MasterCard, Visa, and American Express. Note that we are charged
about 5% of an order's total amount in credit card processing fees;
please consider paying by check instead or adding on a 5% donation to
make up the difference. We do *not* recommend that you send credit card
numbers to us via email, since we have no way of insuring that the
information will remain confidential.
* MULE Merge Complete
MULE is the Multi-Lingual Emacs developed by Ken'ichi Handa at the
Electrotechnical Lab in Tsukuba, Japan. This code has been merged into
Emacs and is included in Emacs 20.
* GPC, the GNU Pascal Compiler
The GNU Pascal Compiler (GPC) is part of the GNU compiler family, GNU CC
or GCC. It combines a Pascal front end with the proven GNU compiler
backend for code generation and optimization. Unlike utilities such as
p2c, this is a true compiler, not just a converter.
Version 2.0 of GPC corresponds to GCC version
The purpose of the GNU Pascal project is to produce a compiler which:
* combines the clarity of Pascal with powerful tools suitable for
real-life programming,
* supports both the Pascal standard and the Extended Pascal standard
as defined by ISO, ANSI and IEEE. (ISO 7185:1990, ISO/IEC
10206:1991, ANSI/IEEE 770X3.160-1989)
* supports other Pascal standards (UCSD Pascal, Borland Pascal,
Pascal-SC) in so far as this serves the goal of clarity and
* can generate code for and run on any computer for which the GNU C
Compiler can generate code and run on.
The current release (2.0) implements Standard Pascal (ISO 7185, level 0)
and a large subset of Extended Pascal (ISO 10206) and Borland Pascal.
The upcoming release 2.1 features better conformance to the various
Pascal standards, and of course bug fixes.
A growing group of GPC enthusiasts contributes to the project with code,
bug reports or fixes.
`', also known as
`', is the GNU Pascal home page;
sources may be downloaded from `'
(official) or `'
(development versions).
GUILE 1.2 is released. GNU's Ubiquitous Intelligent Language for
Extension is an SCM-based library that can make any ordinary C program
extensible. (For SCM info, see "JACAL" in *Note GNU Software::.)
Nightly snapshots of the development sources are also available, in
Also being developed are SCSH-compatible system call & Tk interfaces, a
module system, dynamic linking support, & a byte-code interpreter.
Support for Emacs Lisp & a more C-like language is coming.
* A New FSF T-shirt!
We have a new T-shirt design. *Note FSF T-shirt::, for the description.
* New free game
In August 1995, the action game Abuse by Jonathan Clark was released for
the first time. It wasn't free software then--but now, less than two
years later, the company Crack dot Com has rereleased it as free
software. Abuse was initially developed on Linux-based GNU systems, and
we've included it on our our source CD set.
Beyond providing the free software community with a game that many
people enjoy, and code that could be useful for developing other free
games, this demonstrates an important fact about the economic
circumstances of computer game development: most non-free games bring
their profit in a very short period of time. Therefore, a game company
can turn a game into free software fairly soon, with little hardship.
Let's hope that other game developers follow this example.
The Deluxe Distribution
The Free Software Foundation has been asked repeatedly to create a package
that provides executables for all of our software. Normally we offer only
sources. The Deluxe Distribution provides binaries with the source code and
includes six T-shirts, all our CD-ROMs, printed manuals, & reference cards.
The FSF Deluxe Distribution contains the binaries and sources to hundreds of
different programs including Emacs, the GNU C/C++ Compiler, the GNU Debugger,
the complete X Window System, and all the GNU utilities.
We will make a Deluxe Distribution for most machines/operating systems. We
may be able to send someone to your office to do the compilation, if we can't
find a suitable machine here. However, we can only compile the programs that
already support your chosen machine/system - porting is a separate matter.
(To commission a port, see the GNU Service Directory; details in *Note Free
Software Support::.) Compiling all these programs takes time; a Deluxe
Distribution for an unusual machine will take longer to produce than one for
a common machine. Please contact the FSF Office with any questions.
We supply the software on a write-once CD-ROM (in ISO 9660 format with "Rock
Ridge" extensions), or on one of these tapes in Unix `tar' format: 1600 or
6250bpi 1/2in reel, Sun DC300XLP 1/4in cartridge - QIC24, IBM RS/6000 1/4in
c.t. - QIC 150, Exabyte 8mm c.t., or DAT 4mm c.t. If your computer cannot
read any of these, please contact us to see if we can handle your format.
The manuals included are one each of `Bison', `Calc', `GAWK', `GCC', `GNU C
Library', `GDB', `Flex', `GNU Emacs Lisp Reference', `Programming in Emacs
Lisp: An Introduction', `Make', `Texinfo', & `Termcap' manuals; six copies of
the `GNU Emacs' manual; and ten reference cards each for Emacs, Bison, Calc,
Flex, & GDB.
Every Deluxe Distribution also has a copy of the latest editions of our
CD-ROMs that have sources of our software & compiler tool binaries for some
systems. The CDs are in ISO 9660 format with Rock Ridge extensions.
The price of the Deluxe Distribution is $5000 (shipping included). These
sales provide enormous financial assistance to help the FSF develop more free
software. To order, please fill out the "Deluxe Distribution" section on the

GNU Documentation
GNU is dedicated to having quality, easy-to-use online & printed
documentation. GNU manuals are intended to explain underlying concepts,
describe how to use all the features of each program, & give examples of
command use. GNU manuals are distributed as Texinfo source files, which
yield both typeset hardcopy via the TeX document formatting system and online
hypertext display via the menu-driven Info system. Source for these manuals
comes with our software; here are the manuals that we publish as printed
books. *Note Free Software Foundation Order Form::, to order them.
Most GNU manuals are bound as soft cover books with "lay-flat" bindings.
This allows you to open them so they lie flat on a table without creasing the
binding. They have an inner cloth spine and an outer cardboard cover that
will not break or crease as an ordinary paperback will. Currently, the
`Using and Porting GNU CC', `GDB', `Emacs', `Emacs Lisp Reference',
`Programming in Emacs Lisp: An Introduction', `GNU Awk User's Guide', `Make',
& `Bison' manuals have this binding. Our other manuals also lie flat when
opened, using a GBC binding. Our manuals are 7in by 9.25in except the 8.5in
by 11in `Calc' manual.
The edition number of the manual and version number of the program listed
after each manual's name were current at the time this Bulletin was published.
`Debugging with GDB' (for Version 4.16) tells how to run your program under
GNU Debugger control, examine and alter data, modify a program's flow of
control, and use GDB through GNU Emacs.
The `GNU Emacs Manual' (13th Edition for Version 20) describes editing with
GNU Emacs. It explains advanced features, including international character
sets; outline mode and regular expression search; how to use special
programming modes to write languages like C++ and TeX; how to use the `tags'
utility; how to compile and correct code; how to make your own keybindings;
and other elementary customizations.
`Programming in Emacs Lisp: An Introduction' (October 1995 Edition 1.04) is
for people who are not necessarily interested in programming, but who do want
to customize or extend their computing environment. If you read it in Emacs
under Info mode, you can run the sample programs directly.
`The GNU Emacs Lisp Reference Manual' (Edition 2.4 for Version 19.29) and
`The GNU Emacs Lisp Reference, Japanese Edition' (Japanese Draft Revision
1.0, from English Edition 2.4 for Version 19.29) cover this programming
language in depth, including data types, control structures, functions,
macros, syntax tables, searching/matching, modes, windows, keymaps, byte
compilation, and the operating system interface.
`The GNU Awk User's Guide' (Edition 1.0 for Version 3.0) tells how to use
`gawk'. It is written for those who have never used `awk' and describes
features of this powerful string and record manipulation language. It
clearly delineates those features which are part of POSIX `awk' from `gawk'
extensions, providing a comprehensive guide to `awk' program portability.
`GNU Make' (Edition 0.51 for Version 3.76 Beta) describes GNU `make', a
program used to rebuild parts of other programs. The manual tells how to
write "makefiles", which specify how a program is to be compiled and how its
files depend on each other. Included are an introductory chapter for novice
users and a section about automatically generated dependencies.
The `Flex' manual (Edition 1.03 for Version 2.3.7) teaches you to write a
lexical scanner definition for the `flex' program to create a C++ or C-coded
scanner that recognizes the patterns defined. You need no prior knowledge of
`The Bison Manual' (November 1995 Edition for Version 1.25) teaches you how
to write context-free grammars for the Bison program that convert into
C-coded parsers. You need no prior knowledge of parser generators.
`Using and Porting GNU CC' (November 1995 Edition for Version 2.7.2) tells
how to run, install, and port the GNU C Compiler to new systems. It lists
new features and incompatibilities of GCC, but people not familiar with C
will still need a good reference on the C programming language. It also
covers G++.
The `Texinfo' manual (Edition 2.24 for Version 3) explains the markup
language that produces our online Info documentation & typeset hardcopies.
It tells you how to make tables, lists, chapters, nodes, accented & special
characters, indexes, cross references, & how to catch mistakes.
`The Termcap Manual' (3rd Edition for Version 1.3), often described as "twice
as much as you ever wanted to know about termcap," details the format of the
termcap database, the definitions of terminal capabilities, and the process
of interrogating a terminal description. This manual is primarily for
The `C Library Reference Manual' (Edition 0.08 for Version 2.0) describes the
library's facilities, including both what Unix calls "library functions" &
"system calls." We are doing small copier runs of this manual until it
becomes more stable. Please send fixes to `'.
The `Emacs Calc Manual' (for Version 2.02) is both a tutorial and a reference
manual. It tells how to do ordinary arithmetic, how to use Calc for algebra,
calculus, and other forms of mathematics, and how to extend Calc.
GNU Software
All our software is available via FTP; see *Note How to Get GNU Software::.
We also offer *Note CD-ROMs::, and printed *Note Documentation::, which
includes manuals and reference cards. In the articles describing the
contents of each medium, the version number listed after each program name
was current when we published this Bulletin. When you order a newer CD-ROM,
some of the programs may be newer and therefore the version number higher.
*Note Free Software Foundation Order Form::, for ordering information.
Some of the contents of our FTP distributions are compressed. We have
software on our FTP sites to uncompress these files. Due to patent troubles
with `compress', we use another compression program, `gzip'.
You may need to build GNU `make' before you build our other software. Some
vendors supply no `make' utility at all and some native `make' programs lack
the `VPATH' feature essential for using the GNU configure system to its full
extent. The GNU `make' sources have a shell script to build `make' itself on
such systems.
We welcome all bug reports and enhancements sent to the appropriate
electronic mailing list (*note Free Software Support::.).
Configuring GNU Software
We are using Autoconf, a uniform scheme for configuring GNU software packages
in order to compile them (see "Autoconf" and "Automake" below, in this
article). The goal is to have all GNU software support the same alternatives
for naming machine and system types.
Ultimately, it will be possible to configure and build the entire system all
at once, eliminating the need to configure each individual package separately.
You can also specify both the host and target system to build
cross-compilation tools. Most GNU programs now use Autoconf-generated
configure scripts.

The recently-freed program `abuse' is a dark, side-scrolling game with
Robotron-esque controls: you control your movement with the keyboard and
fire & aim with the mouse. You can get more info at
* acct (SrcCD)
acct is a system accounting package. It includes the programs `ac'
(summarize login accounting), `accton' (turn accounting on or off),
`last' (show who has logged in recently), `lastcomm' (show which
commands have been used), `sa' (summarize process accounting),
`dump-utmp' (print a `utmp' file in human-readable format), &
`dump-acct' (print an `acct' or `pacct' file in human-readable format).
* `acm' (SrcCD)
`acm' is a LAN-oriented, multiplayer, aerial combat simulation that runs
under the X Window System. Players engage in air to air combat against
one another using heat seeking missiles and cannons. We are working on
a more accurate simulation of real airplane flight characteristics.
* aegis (SrcCD)
Aegis is a transaction-based software configuration management system.
It provides a framework within which a team of developers may work on
many changes to a program concurrently, and Aegis coordinates
integrating these changes back into the master source of the program,
with as little disruption as possible.
* Apache *Also see* `' (SrcCD)
Apache is an HTTP server designed as a successor to the NCSA family of
Web servers. It adds a significant amount of new functionality, has an
extensive API for modular enhancements, is extremely flexible without
compromising speed, and has an active development group and user
* Autoconf (SrcCD)
Autoconf produces shell scripts which automatically configure source code
packages. These scripts adapt the packages to many kinds of Unix-like
systems without manual user intervention. Autoconf creates a script for
a package from a template file which lists the operating system features
which the package can use, in the form of `m4' macro calls. Autoconf
requires GNU `m4' to operate, but the resulting configure scripts it
generates do not.
* Automake (SrcCD)
Automake is a tool for generating `' files for use with
Autoconf. The generated makefiles are compliant with GNU Makefile
* BASH (SrcCD)
GNU's shell, BASH (Bourne Again SHell), is compatible with the Unix `sh'
and offers many extensions found in `csh' and `ksh'. BASH has job
control, `csh'-style command history, command-line editing (with Emacs
and `vi' modes built-in), and the ability to rebind keys via the
`readline' library. BASH conforms to the POSIX 1003.2-1992 standard.
* bc (SrcCD)
`bc' is an interactive algebraic language with arbitrary precision
numbers. GNU `bc' follows the POSIX 1003.2-1992 standard with several
extensions, including multi-character variable names, an `else'
statement, and full Boolean expressions. The RPN calculator `dc' is now
distributed as part of the same package, but GNU `bc' is not implemented
as a `dc' preprocessor.
* BFD (BinCD, SrcCD)
The Binary File Descriptor library allows a program which operates on
object files (e.g., `ld' or GDB) to support many different formats in a
clean way. BFD provides a portable interface, so that only BFD needs to
know the details of a particular format. One result is that all
programs using BFD will support formats such as a.out, COFF, and ELF.
BFD comes with Texinfo source for a manual (not yet published on paper).
At present, BFD is not distributed separately; it is included with
packages that use it.
* Binutils (BinCD, SrcCD)
Binutils includes these programs: `addr2line', `ar', `c++filt', `gas',
`gprof', `ld', `nm', `objcopy', `objdump', `ranlib', `size', `strings', &
Binutils version 2 uses the BFD library. The GNU assembler, `gas',
supports the a29k, Alpha, ARM, D10V, H8/300, H8/500, HP-PA, i386, i960,
M32R, m68k, m88k, MIPS, Matsushita 10200 and 10300, NS32K, PowerPC,
RS/6000, SH, SPARC, Tahoe, Vax, and Z8000 CPUs, and attempts to be
compatible with many other assemblers for Unix and embedded systems. It
can produce mixed C and assembly listings, and includes a macro facility
similar to that in some other assemblers. GNU's linker, `ld', supports
shared libraries on many systems, emits source-line numbered error
messages for multiply-defined symbols and undefined references, and
interprets a superset of AT&T's Linker Command Language, which gives
control over where segments are placed in memory. `objdump' can
disassemble code for most of the CPUs listed above, and can display
other data (e.g., symbols and relocations) from any file format read by

1003.1-1990, POSIX 1003.1b-1993, POSIX 1003.1c-1995 (when the underlying
system permits), & most of the functions in POSIX 1003.2-1992. It is
nearly compliant with the extended XPG4.2 specification which guarantees
upward compatibility with 4.4BSD & many System V functions.
When used with the GNU Hurd, the C Library performs many functions of the
Unix system calls directly. Mike Haertel has written a fast `malloc'
which wastes less memory than the old GNU version.
GNU `stdio' lets you define new kinds of streams, just by writing a few
C functions. Two methods for handling translated messages help writing
internationalized programs & the user can adopt the environment the
program runs in to conform with local conventions. Extended `getopt'
functions are already used to parse options, including long options, in
many GNU utilities. The name lookup functions now are modularized which
makes it easier to select the service which is needed for the specific
database & the document interface makes it easy to add new services.
Texinfo source for the `GNU C Library Reference Manual' is included
(*note Documentation::.).
Previous versions of the GNU C library ran on a large number of systems.
The architecture-dependent parts of the C library have not been updated
since development on version 2.0 started, so today it runs out of the
box only on GNU/Hurd (all platforms GNU/Hurd also runs on) & GNU/Linux
(ix86, Alpha, m68k, MIPS, Sparc, PowerPC; work is in progress for ARM).
Other architectures will become available again as soon as somebody does
the port.
* C++ Library (`libg++') (BinCD, SrcCD)
The GNU C++ library (traditionally called `libg++') includes libstdc++,
which implements the library facilities defined by the forthcoming ISO
C++ standard. This includes strings, iostream, and various container
classes. All of this is templatized.
The package also contains the older libg++ library for backward
compatibility, but new programs should avoid using it.
* Calc (SrcCD) [FSFman, FSFrc]
Calc (written by Dave Gillespie in Emacs Lisp) is an extensible, advanced
desk calculator & mathematical tool that runs as part of GNU Emacs. You
can use Calc as a simple four-function calculator, but it has many more
features including: choice of algebraic or RPN (stack-based) entry;
logarithmic, trigonometric, & financial functions; arbitrary precision;
complex numbers; vectors; matrices; dates; times; infinities; sets;
algebraic simplification; & differentiation & integration. It outputs
to `gnuplot', & comes with source for a manual & reference card (*note
* `cfengine' (SrcCD)
`cfengine' is used to maintain site-wide configuration of a
heterogeneous Unix network using a simple high level language. Its
appearance is similar to `rdist', but allows many more operations to be
performed automatically. See Mark Burgess, "A Site Configuration
Engine", `Computing Systems', Vol. 8, No. 3 (ask `' how
to get a copy).
* Chess (SrcCD)
GNU Chess enables you to play a game of chess with a computer instead of
a person. It is useful to practice with when there are significant
spare cpu cycles and a real person is unavailable.
The program offers a plain terminal interface, one using curses, and a
reasonable X Windows interface `xboard'. Best results are obtained by
compiling with GNU C.
Improvements this past year are in the Windows-compatible version,
mostly bugfixes.
Stuart Cracraft started the GNU mascot back in the mid-1980's. John
Stanback (and innumerable contributors) are responsible for GNU's brain
development and its fair play. Acknowledgements for the past year's
work are due Conor McCarthy.

CLISP is a Common Lisp implementation by Bruno Haible & Michael Stoll.
It mostly supports the Lisp described by `Common LISP: The Language (2nd
edition)' & the ANSI Common Lisp standard. CLISP includes an
interpreter, a byte-compiler, a large subset of CLOS & a foreign language
interface. The user interface language (English, German, French) can be
chosen at run time. An X11 API is available through CLX & Garnet.
CLISP needs only 2 MB of memory & runs on all kinds of Unix systems & on
many microcomputers (including MS-DOS systems, OS/2, Windows NT, Windows
95, Amiga 500-4000, & Acorn RISC PC). See also item "Common Lisp",
which describes GCL, a complete Common Lisp implementation with compiler.
* CLX (SrcCD)
CLX is an X Window interface library for GCL. This is separate from the
built-in TK interface.
* Common Lisp (`gcl') (SrcCD)
GNU Common Lisp (GCL, formerly known as Kyoto Common Lisp) is a compiler
& interpreter for Common Lisp. GCL is very portable & extremely
efficient on a wide class of applications, & compares favorably in
performance with commercial Lisps on several large theorem-prover &
symbolic algebra systems. GCL supports the CLtL1 specification but is
moving towards the proposed ANSI standard.
GCL compiles to C & then uses the native optimizing C compiler (e.g.,
GCC). A function with a fixed number of args & one value turns into a C
function of the same number of args, returning one value--so GCL is
maximally efficient on such calls. Its conservative garbage collector
gives great freedom to the C compiler to put Lisp values in registers.
It has a source level Lisp debugger for interpreted code & displays
source code in an Emacs window. Its profiler (based on the C profiling
tools) counts function calls & the time spent in each function.
There is now a built-in interface to the Tk widget system. It runs in a
separate process, so users may monitor progress on Lisp computations or
interact with running computations via a windowing interface.
There is also an Xlib interface via C (xgcl-2). CLX runs with GCL, as
does PCL (see "PCL" later in this article).
GCL version 2.2.2 is released under the GNU Library General Public
* cook (SrcCD)
Cook is a tool for constructing files, and maintaining referential
integrity between files. It is given a set of files to create, and
recipes of how to create and maintain them. In any non-trivial program
there will be prerequisites to performing the actions necessary to
creating any file, such as include files. The `cook' program provides a
mechanism to define these.
Some features which distinguish Cook include a strong procedural
description language, and fingerprints to supplement file modification
time stamps. There is also a `make2cook' utility included to ease
* `cpio' (SrcCD)
`cpio' is an archive program with all the features of SVR4 `cpio',
including support for the final POSIX 1003.1 `ustar' standard. `mt', a
program to position magnetic tapes, is included with `cpio'.
* CVS (SrcCD)
CVS is a version control system (like RCS or SCCS) which allows you to
keep old versions of files (usually source code), keep a log of who,
when, and why changes occurred, etc. It handles multiple developers,
multiple directories, triggers to enable/log/control various operations,
and can work over a wide area network. It does not handle build
management or bug-tracking; these are handled by `make' and GNATS,
* `cxref' (SrcCD)
`cxref' is a program that will produce documentation (in LaTeX or HTML)
including cross-references from C program source code. It has been
designed to work with ANSI C, incorporating K&R, and most popular GNU
extensions. The documentation for the subject program is produced from
comments in the code that are appropriately formatted. The cross
referencing comes from the code itself and requires no extra work.
* DDD (SrcCD)
The Data Display Debugger (DDD) is a common graphical user interface to
GDB, DBX, and XDB, the popular Unix debuggers. DDD provides a graphical
data display where complex data structures can be explored incrementally
and interactively. DDD has been designed to compete with well-known
commercial debuggers; as of release 2.1.1, DDD also compiles and runs
with LessTif, a free Motif clone, without loss of functionality. For
more details, see the DDD WWW page at
* DejaGnu (SrcCD)
DejaGnu is a framework to test programs with a single front end for all
tests. DejaGnu's flexibility & consistency makes it easy to write tests.
DejaGnu will also work with remote hosts and embedded systems.
DejaGnu comes with `expect', which runs scripts to conduct dialogs with
* Diffutils (SrcCD)
GNU `diff' compares files showing line-by-line changes in several
flexible formats. It is much faster than traditional Unix versions. The
Diffutils package has `diff', `diff3', `sdiff', & `cmp'. Future plans
include support for internationalization (e.g., error messages in
Chinese) & some non-Unix PC environments, & a library interface that can
be used by other free software.
* DJGPP *Also see "GCC" below* (BinCD)
DJ Delorie has ported GCC/G++ to i386s running DOS. DJGPP has a 32-bit
i386 DOS extender with a symbolic debugger, development libraries, &
ports of Bison, `flex', & Binutils. Full source code is provided. It
needs at least 5MB of hard disk space to install & 512K of RAM to use.
It supports SVGA (up to 1024x768), XMS & VDISK memory allocation,
`himem.sys', VCPI (e.g., QEMM, DESQview, & 386MAX), & DPMI (e.g.,
Windows 3.x, OS/2, QEMM, & QDPMI). Version 2 was released in Feb. 1996,
& needs a DPMI environment; a free DPMI server is included.

`/pub/simtelnet/gnu/djgpp/' (or a SimTel mirror site).
Ask `', to join a DJGPP users mailing list.
* `dld' (SrcCD)
`dld' is a dynamic linker written by W. Wilson Ho. Linking your program
with the `dld' library allows you to dynamically load object files into
the running binary. `dld' supports a.out object types on the following
platforms: Convex C-Series (BSD), i386/i486/Pentium (GNU/Linux), Sequent
Symmetry i386 (Dynix 3), Sun-3 (SunOS 3 & 4), Sun-4 (SunOS 4), & VAX
* `doschk' (SrcCD)
This program is a utility to help software developers ensure that their
source file names are distinguishable on System V platforms with
14-character filenames and on MS-DOS systems with 8+3 character
* `ed' (SrcCD)
`ed' is the standard text editor. It is line-oriented and can be used
interactively or in scripts.
* Elib (SrcCD)
Elib is a small library of Emacs Lisp functions, including routines for
using AVL trees and doubly-linked lists.

This is a snapshot of Ohio State's GNU Emacs Lisp FTP Archive. FTP it
from `' in `/pub/gnu/emacs/elisp-archive'.
* Emacs *Also *note GNUs Flashes::.* [FSFman(s), FSFrc]
In 1975, Richard Stallman developed the first Emacs, an extensible,
customizable real-time display editor & computing environment. GNU Emacs
is his second implementation. It offers true Lisp--smoothly integrated
into the editor--for writing extensions & provides an interface to the X
Window System. It runs on Unix, MS-DOS, & Windows NT or 95. In
addition to its powerful native command set, Emacs can emulate the
editors vi & EDT (DEC's VMS editor). Emacs has many other features which
make it a full computing support environment. Source for the `GNU Emacs
Manual' & a reference card comes with the software. Sources for the
`GNU Emacs Lisp Reference Manual', & `Programming in Emacs Lisp: An
Introduction' are distributed in separate packages. *Note
* Emacs 20 (SrcCD) [FSFman(s), FSFrc]
Emacs 20.1 was just released recently. Its main new features include
support for many languages and many character codes (the MULE facility)
and a new convenient customization feature. The text-filling commands
handle indented and bulleted paragraphs conveniently; there are new help
facilities for looking up documentation about functions and symbols in
various languages. A new method of file-locking works even when using
NFS. Some dired commands have been made more systematic.
We believe Emacs 20 operates on the same systems as Emacs 19, but we do
not have confirmation for all of them.
* Emacs 19 (SrcCD) [FSFman(s), FSFrc]
Emacs 19 works with character-only terminals & with the X Window System
(with or without an X toolkit). It also runs on MS-DOS, MS Windows, and
with multiple-window support on MS Windows 95/NT.
Emacs 19 works on: Acorn RISC (RISCiX); Alliant FX/2800 (BSD); Alpha

* Emacs 18 (SrcCD) [FSFrc]
Emacs 18 is several years old. We no longer maintain it, but still
distribute it for those using platforms which Emacs 19 does not support.
* `enscript' (SrcCD)
`enscript' is an upwardly-compatible replacement for the Adobe
`enscript' program. It formats ASCII files (outputting in Postscript)
and stores generated output to a file or sends it directly to the
* `es' (SrcCD)
`es' is an extensible shell (based on `rc') with first-class functions,
lexical scope, exceptions, and rich return values (i.e., functions can
return values other than just numbers). `es''s extensibility comes from
the ability to modify and extend the shell's built-in services, such as
path searching and redirection. Like `rc', it is great for both
interactive use and scripting, particularly since its quoting rules are
much less baroque than the C and Bourne shells.
* Exim (SrcCD)
Exim is a new Internet mail transfer agent, similar in style to Smail 3.
It can handle relatively high volume mail systems, header rewriting,
control over which hosts/nets may use it as a relay, blocking of
unwanted mail from specified hosts/nets/senders, and multiple local
domains on one mail host ("virtual domains") with several options for
the way these are handled.
* `f2c' *Also see "Fortran" below & in *Note Forthcoming GNUs::.*
`f2c' converts Fortran-77 source into C or C++, which can be compiled
with GCC or G++. Get bug fixes by FTP from site `'
or by email from `'. For a summary, see the
file `/netlib/f2c/readme.gz'.
* `ffcall' (SrcCD)
`ffcall' is a C library for implementing foreign function calls in
embedded interpreters by Bill Triggs and Bruno Haible. It allows C
functions with arbitrary argument lists and return types to be called or
emulated (callbacks).
* Fileutils (SrcCD)
The Fileutils are: `chgrp', `chmod', `chown', `cp', `dd', `df', `dir',
`dircolors', `du', `install', `ln', `ls', `mkdir', `mkfifo', `mknod',
`mv', `rm', `rmdir', `sync', `touch', & `vdir'.
* Findutils (SrcCD)
`find' is frequently used both interactively and in shell scripts to
find files which match certain criteria and perform arbitrary operations
on them. Also included are `locate', which scans a database for file
names that match a pattern, and `xargs', which applies a command to a
list of files.
* Finger (SrcCD)
GNU Finger has more features than other finger programs. For sites with
many hosts, a single host may be designated as the finger "server" host
and other hosts at that site configured as finger "clients". The server
host collects information about who is logged in on the clients. To
finger a user at a GNU Finger site, a query to any of its client hosts
gets useful information. GNU Finger supports many customization
features, including user output filters and site-programmable output for
special target names.
* `flex' (BinCD, SrcCD) [FSFman, FSFrc]
`flex' is a replacement for the `lex' scanner generator. `flex' was
written by Vern Paxson of the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and generates
far more efficient scanners than `lex' does. Sources for the `Flex
Manual' and reference card are included (*note Documentation::.).
* Fontutils (SrcCD)
The Fontutils convert between font formats, create fonts for use with
Ghostscript or TeX (starting with a scanned type image & converting the
bitmaps to outlines), etc. It includes: `bpltobzr', `bzrto',
`charspace', `fontconvert', `gsrenderfont', `imageto', `imgrotate',
`limn', & `xbfe'.
* Fortran (`g77') *Also *note Forthcoming GNUs::.* (BinCD, SrcCD)
GNU Fortran (`g77'), developed by Craig Burley, is available for public
beta testing on the Internet. For now, `g77' produces code that is
mostly object-compatible with `f2c' & uses the same run-time library
* `gawk' (SrcCD) [FSFman]
`gawk' is upwardly compatible with the latest POSIX specification of
`awk'. It also provides several useful extensions not found in other
`awk' implementations. Texinfo source for the `The GNU Awk User's
Guide' comes with the software (*note Documentation::.).
* `gcal' (SrcCD)
`gcal' is a program for printing calendars. It displays different
styled calendar sheets, eternal holiday lists, and fixed date warning
* GCC (BinCD, SrcCD) [FSFman]
Version 2 of the GNU C Compiler supports the languages C, C++, and
Objective-C; the source file name suffix or a compiler option selects
the language. (Also see "GNAT" later in this article for Ada language
supports.) Objective-C support was donated by NeXT. The runtime support
needed to run Objective-C programs is now distributed with GCC. (This
does not include any Objective-C classes aside from `object', but see
"GNUstep" in *Note Forthcoming GNUs::.) G++ seeks to be compliant with
the ANSI C++ language standard. See
`' for the latest draft.
GCC is a fairly portable optimizing compiler which performs many
optimizations. They include: automatic register allocation, common
sub-expression elimination (CSE) (including a certain amount of CSE
between basic blocks - though not all the supported machine descriptions
provide for scheduling or delay slots), invariant code motion from
loops, induction variable optimizations, constant propagation, copy
propagation, delayed popping of function call arguments, tail recursion
elimination, integration of inline functions & frame pointer elimination,
instruction scheduling, loop unrolling, filling of delay slots, leaf
function optimization, optimized multiplication by constants, the
ability to assign attributes to instructions, & many local optimizations
automatically deduced from the machine description.
GCC can open-code most arithmetic on 64-bit values (type `long long
int'). It supports extended floating point (type `long double') on the
68k; other machines will follow. GCC supports full ANSI C, traditional
C, & GNU C extensions (including: nested functions support, nonlocal
gotos, & taking the address of a label).
GCC can generate a.out, COFF, ELF, & OSF-Rose files when used with a
suitable assembler. It can produce debugging information in these
formats: BSD stabs, COFF, ECOFF, ECOFF with stabs, & DWARF.
GCC generates code for many CPUs, including the a29k, Alpha, ARM, AT&T,
DSP1610, Clipper, Convex cN, Elxsi, Fujitsu Gmicro, i370, i860, i960,
MIL-STD-1750a, MIPS, ns32k, PDP-11, Pyramid, ROMP, RS/6000, SH, SPUR,
Tahoe, VAX, & we32k.
Position-independent code is generated for the Clipper, Hitachi H8/300,
HP-PA (1.0 & 1.1), i386/i486/Pentium, m68k, m88k, SPARC, & SPARClite.
Operating systems supported include: GNU/Hurd, GNU/Linux, ACIS, AIX, AOS,
BSD, Clix, Concentrix, Ctix, DG/UX, Dynix, FreeBSD, Genix, HP-UX, Irix,
ISC, Luna, LynxOS, Minix, NetBSD, NewsOS, NeXTStep, OS/2, OSF, OSF-Rose,
RISCOS, SCO, Solaris 2, SunOS 4, System/370, SysV, Ultrix, Unos, VMS, &
Using the configuration scheme for GCC, building a cross-compiler is as
easy as building a native compiler.
Texinfo source for the `Using and Porting GNU CC' manual is included
with GCC (*note Documentation::.).
* GDB (BinCD, SrcCD) [FSFman, FSFrc]
GDB, the GNU DeBugger, is a source-level debugger for C, C++, & Fortran.
It provides partial support for Modula-2 & Chill.
GDB can debug both C & C++, & will work with executables made by many
different compilers; but, C++ debugging will have some limitations if
you do not use GCC.
GDB has a command line user interface, and Emacs has GDB mode as an
interface. Two X interfaces (not distributed or maintained by the FSF)
are: `gdbtk' (FTP it from `' in directory `/pub/gdb'); and
`xxgdb' (FTP it from `' in directory `/contrib/utilities').
Executable files and symbol tables are read via the BFD library, which
allows a single copy of GDB to debug programs with multiple object file
formats (e.g., a.out, COFF, ELF). Other features include a rich command
language, remote debugging over serial lines or TCP/IP, and watchpoints
(breakpoints triggered when the value of an expression changes).
GDB uses a standard remote interface to a simulator library which
includes simulators for the ARM, Hitachi H8/300, Hitachi SH, & PowerPC.
GDB can perform cross-debugging. To say that GDB "targets" a platform
means it can perform native or cross-debugging for it. To say that GDB
can "host" a given platform means that it can be built on it, but cannot
necessarily debug native programs.
GDB can:

market. It is available for many more Unix variants than any other
comparable product, and inter-operates with other NQS systems, including
Cray's NQE.
* `geomview' *See* `' (SrcCD)
`geomview' is an interactive geometry viewing program, for Unix systems
with Motif, using X, GL, or OpenGL graphics. It allows multiple
independently controllable objects and cameras. External programs may
drive desired aspects of the viewer, e.g. loading changing geometry or
controlling motion, while allowing interactive mouse-and-GUI control of
everything else. Controllable features include motion, appearance
(wireframe, shading, lighting and material properties), mouse-based
selection, snapshoting (PPM or SGI image, Postscript, and RenderMan
formats), display in hyperbolic and spherical spaces, and projection
from higher dimensions. Includes converters to display Mathematica and
Maple 3-D graphics, and limited conversion to/from VRML.
* `gettext' *Also *note Help the Translation Project::.* (SrcCD)
The GNU `gettext' tool set has everything maintainers need to
internationalize a package's user messages. Once a package has been
internationalized, `gettext''s many tools help translators localize
messages to their native language and automate handling the translation
* `gforth' (SrcCD)
`gforth' is a fast, portable implementation of the ANS Forth language.
* Ghostscript (SrcCD)
Ghostscript is an interpreter for the Postscript and PDF graphics
The current version of GNU Ghostscript, 3.53, includes a Postscript
Level 2 interpreter and a PDF 1.1 interpreter (except for encryption).
Significant new features include the ability to convert PDF to
Ghostscript executes commands in the Postscript and PDF languages by
writing directly to a printer, drawing on an X window, or writing to
files for printing later or manipulating with other graphics programs.
Ghostscript includes a C-callable graphics library (for client programs
that do not want to deal with the Postscript language). It also runs on
MS-DOS, MS Windows, OS/2, OpenVMS, and Mac OS (native on both 68K and
PowerPC) (but please do *not* ask the FSF staff any questions about this;
we do not use these operating systems).
* Ghostview (SrcCD)
Tim Theisen, `', created Ghostview, a previewer for
multi-page files with an X Window interface. Ghostview & Ghostscript
work together; Ghostview creates a viewing window & Ghostscript draws in
* GIT (SrcCD)
The GNU Interactive Tools package includes: an extensible file system
browser, an ASCII/hex file viewer, a process viewer/killer, & other
related utilities & shell scripts. It can be used to increase the speed
& efficiency of many daily tasks, such as copying & moving files &
directories, invoking editors, compressing/uncompressing files, creating
& expanding archives, compiling programs, sending mail, etc. It looks
nice, has colors (if the standard ANSI color sequences are supported), &
is user-friendly.
* `gmp' (SrcCD)
GNU `mp' is a library for arithmetic on arbitrary precision integers,
rational numbers, and floating-point numbers. It has a rich set of

chosen GNU Ada 95 as the Ada compiler for some of their systems. GNAT
is maintained by Ada Core Technologies. For more information, see
GNATS, GNats: A Tracking System, is a bug-tracking system. It is based
upon the paradigm of a central site or organization which receives
problem reports and negotiates their resolution by electronic mail.
Although it has been used primarily as a software bug-tracking system so
far, it is sufficiently generalized that it could be used for handling
system administration issues, project management, or any number of other

management of software projects. Used with GNU `diff', RCS can handle
binary files (8-bit data, executables, object files, etc). RCS now
conforms to GNU configuration standards & to POSIX 1003.1b-1993. Also
see the CVS item above.
* `readline' (BinCD, SrcCD)
Brian Fox wrote the `readline' library one weekend in 1987, so that the
FSF would have a clean Emacs-like line editing facility that could be
used across multiple programs. After installing it in Bash, he went on
to test the reusability of the code by adding it to GDB, and then later,
to the GNU FTP client. The library supplies many entry points--the
simplest interface gives any program the ability to store a history of
input lines, and gives the end user a complete Emacs-like (or vi-like)
editing capability over the input, simply by replacing calls to `gets'
with calls to `readline'.
* `recode' *Also *note Forthcoming GNUs::.* (SrcCD)
GNU `recode' converts files between character sets and usages. When
exact transliterations are not possible, it may delete the offending
characters or fall back on approximations. This program recognizes or
outputs nearly 150 different character sets and is able to transliterate
files between almost any pair. Most RFC 1345 character sets are
* `regex' (SrcCD)
The GNU regular expression library supports POSIX.2, except for
internationalization features. It is included in many GNU programs which
do regular expression matching & is available separately. An alternate

uses the "rsync algorithm", which provides a very fast method for
synchronizing large remote files, sending only the differences across
the link. It does not require both versions of a file to be local in
order to compute the differences. A technical report describing the
rsync algorithm is included with the package.

them separate while making them appear (via symbolic links) to be
installed in the same place. For example, Emacs can be installed in
`/usr/local/stow/emacs' and Perl in `/usr/local/stow/perl', permitting
each to be administered separately, while with `stow' they will both
appear to be installed in `/usr/local'.
* Superopt (SrcCD)
Superopt is a function sequence generator that uses an exhaustive
generate-and-test approach to find the shortest instruction sequence for
a given function. You provide a function as input, a CPU to generate

* xmcd *Also see* `' (SrcCD)
`xmcd' is an X11-based CD player utility and `cda' is a command-line
driven, non-graphical CD audio player. `xmcd' is developed to use the
OSF/Motif API (version 1.1 and later) and can also be used with LessTif,
the free Motif clone.
In its evolution over the past few years, `xmcd' has established itself
as the premier CD player application for the X window system with an
attractive, easy-to-use user interface. It is feature-rich and runs on
virtually all of the popular Unix and OpenVMS platforms. It also
supports the widest array of CD-ROM and CD-R devices, including some
older SCSI-1 drives that do not work with other CD player applications.
The remote CD database query feature fully utilizes the Internet and
taps on a vast repository of CD artists/titles, track titles and other
information. Multi-disc changers are also supported.
Like many other CD player applications, `xmcd' supports a CD database of
disc and track titles and other information. A distinguishing feature
of `xmcd' is the ability to connect to a remote CD database server to
query this information. Many public Internet CD database servers have
been established around the world for this purpose, and `xmcd' also
allows the user to submit new CD entries to the master database.
* `xshogi' (SrcCD)
`xshogi' is a graphical Shogi (Japanese Chess) board for the X Window
System. It can serve as a user interface to GNU Shogi, as a referee for
games between two humans, or as a client for the Internet Shogi Server.
* `Ygl' (SrcCD)
`Ygl' emulates a subset of SGI's GL (Graphics Language) library under
X11 on most platforms with an ANSI C compiler (including GCC). It has
most two-dimensional graphics routines, the queue device & query
routines, double buffering, RGB mode with dithering, Fortran bindings,
* zlibc (SrcCD)
Zlibc is an uncompressing C library for GNU/Linux and SunOS systems. It
is a preloadable shared object that allows executables to uncompress the
datafiles that they need on the fly. No kernel patch, no recompilation
of these executables and no recompilation of the libraries is needed;
the package overrides the `open' function (and other system call
functions) in the shared library.

We have two series of CD-ROMs: the Source Code CD-ROM, and the Compiler
Tools Binaries CD-ROM.
Our CDs are in ISO 9660 format & can be mounted as a read-only file system on
most computers. If your driver supports it, you can mount each CD with "Rock
Ridge" extensions & it will look like a regular Unix file system, rather than
one full of truncated & otherwise mangled names that fit vanilla ISO 9660.
You can build most of the software without copying the sources off the CD.
You only need enough disk space for object files and intermediate build
Pricing of the GNU CD-ROMs
If a business or organization is ultimately paying, the current GNU Source
CD set costs $240. The set costs $60 if you, an individual, are paying out
of your own pocket. The current Compiler Tools Binaries CD-ROM costs $220
for a business or organization, and $55 for an individual.
What Do the Different Prices Mean?
The software on our disks is free; anyone can copy it and anyone can run it.
What we charge for is the physical disk and the service of distribution.
We charge two different prices depending on who is buying. When a company
or other organization buys the Source CD-ROMs, we charge $240. When an
individual buys the same CD-ROMs, we charge just $60. This distinction is
not a matter of who is allowed to use the software. In either case, once
you have a copy, you can distribute as many copies as you wish and there's
no restriction on who can have or run them. The price distinction is
entirely a matter of what kind of entity pays for the CDs.
You, the reader, are certainly an individual, not a company. If you are
buying a disk "in person", then you are probably doing so as an individual.
But if you expect to be reimbursed by your employer, then the disk is really
for the company; so please pay the company price and get reimbursed for it.
We won't try to check up on you--we use the honor system--so please cooperate.
Buying CDs at the company price is very helpful for GNU; just
150 Source CDs at that price support an FSF programmer or tech writer for a
Why Is There an Individual Price?
In the past, our distribution tapes were ordered mainly by companies. The CD
at the price of $240 provides them with all of our software for a much lower
price than they would previously have paid for six different tapes. To lower
the price more would cut into the FSF's funds very badly and decrease the
software development we can do.
However, for individuals, $240 is too high a price; hardly anyone could
afford that. So we decided to make CDs available to individuals at the lower
price of $60.
Is There a Maximum Price?
Our stated prices are minimum prices. Feel free to pay a higher price if you
wish to support GNU development more. The sky's the limit; we will accept as
high a price as you can offer. Or simply give a donation (tax-deductible in
the U.S.) to the Free Software Foundation, a tax-exempt public charity.
January 1997 Compiler Tools Binaries CD-ROM
In January 1997 we released the fourth edition of our CD-ROM that has
binaries and complete sources for GNU compiler tools for some systems which
lack a compiler. This enables the people who use these systems to compile
GNU and other free software without having to buy a proprietary compiler.
You can also use these GNU tools to compile your own C/C++/Objective-C
programs. Older editions of this CD are available while supplies last at a
reduced price; *Note Free Software Foundation Order Form::.
We hope to have more systems on each update of this CD. If you can help
build binaries for new systems (especially those that don't come with a C
compiler), or have one to suggest, please contact us at the addresses on page
These packages:
* GCC/G++/Objective-C
* GNU C Library
* Binutils
* Bison
* Emacs (MS-DOS only)
* Flex
* Make
* libg++
On these platforms:
* `i386-msdos'
* `hppa1.1-hp-hpux9'
* `hppa1.1-hp-hpux10'
* `powerpc-ibm-aix4.2'
* `sparc-sun-solaris2.4'
* `sparc-sun-solaris2.5'
* `sparc-sun-sunos4.1'
Source Code CD-ROMs
We have several versions of our Source Code CD-ROMs available, including:
* July 1997 Source Code CD-ROMs, the newest release, has programs,
bug fixes, & improvements. See below.
* January 1997 Source Code CD-ROMs.
* July 1996 Source Code CD-ROMss.
* December 1995 Source Code CD-ROMs.
* June 1995 Source Code CD-ROM.
* May 1994 Source Code CD-ROM.
* November 1993 Source Code CD-ROM.
* May 1993 Source Code CD-ROM.
* October 1992 Source Code CD-ROM.
The older Source CDs are available while supplies last at a reduced price
(please note that the December 1994 Source CD is permanently out of stock).
All the Source CDs have Texinfo source for the GNU manuals listed in *Note
Much of X11 is *not* on the older Source CDs which are just one CD
instead of two.
There are no precompiled programs on these Source CDs. You will need a C
compiler (programs which need some other interpreter or compiler normally
provide the C source for a bootstrapping program). We ship C compiler
binaries for some systems on the *Note Compiler Tools Binaries CD-ROM::.
July 1997 Source Code CD-ROMs
The 10th edition of our Source Code CD is available now with two CD-ROM disks.
It has programs, bug fixes, & improvements not on the older Source CDs. It
has these packages, & some manuals that are not part of packages. The
version number of each package listed might be higher on the 10th edition CD
due to new releases being made since this list was generated.

CD-ROM Subscription Service
Our subscription service enables you to stay current with the latest GNU
developments. For a one-time cost equivalent to three Source CD-ROMs (plus
shipping in some cases), we will ship you four new versions of the *Note
Source Code CD-ROMs::. The CD-ROMs are sent as they are issued (currently
twice a year, but we hope to make it more frequent). We do not yet know if
we will be offering subscriptions to the Compiler Tools Binaries CD.
A subscription is an easy way to keep up with the regular bug fixes to the X
Window System. Each edition of the *Note Source Code CD-ROMs::, has updated
sources for the X Window System.
Please note: In two cases, you must pay 4 times the normal shipping required
for a single order when you pay for each subscription. If you're in Alaska,
Hawaii, or Puerto Rico you must add $20.00 for shipping for each
subscription. If you're outside of the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico, you
must add $80.00 for each subscription. See "CD-ROMs" and "Tax and Shipping
Costs" on the *note Free Software Foundation Order Form::.
FSF T-shirt
The front of our T-shirt has the GNU Emacs Lisp code `(USE 'GNU)' with "`()'"
being the dancing parentheses from the cover of our `GNU Emacs Lisp Reference
Manual' (drawn by Berkeley, CA artist Etienne Suvasa). The shirt's back has
the Preamble to the GNU General Public License.
These shirts come in black, natural (off-white), burgundy, and blue-green.
When you order, please give 3 choices. Black is printed in white and the
other colors are printed in black. All shirts are thick 100% cotton; black
and burgundy come in sizes M, L, XL, and XXL and the others in sizes L and XL
(they run small so you may want a larger size than usual).
GNU T-shirts often create spontaneous friendships at conferences & on
university campuses. They also make great gifts for friends & family,
including children!
