D.2 Information About GNU/Linux Software
n http://www.gnu.org is the home of the GNU Project. From this site, you can
download a staggering array of sophisticated free software applications.Among
them is the GNU C library, which is part of every GNU/Linux system and
contains many of the functions described in this book.The GNU Project site
also provides information about how you can contribute to the development of
the GNU/Linux system by writing code or documentation, by using free soft-
ware, and by spreading the free software message.
n http://www.kernel.org is the primary site for distribution of the Linux kernel
source code. For the trickiest and most technically detailed questions about how
Linux works, the source code is the best place to look. See also the
Documentation directory for explanation of the kernel internals.
n http://www.linuxhq.com also distributes Linux kernel sources, patches, and
n http://gcc.gnu.org is the home of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC).
GCC is the primary compiler used on GNU/Linux systems, and it includes
compilers for C, C++, Objective C, Java, Chill, and Fortran.
n http://www.gnome.org and http://www.kde.org are the homes of the two most
popular GNU/Linux windowing enviro
