GCC (GNU Compiler Collection)

GCC (GNU C Compiler, or gcc) was developed by GNU to provide a free compiler for the GNU system. GCC can compile programs written in C, C++, Objective C, Ada 95, Fortran 77 (g77), and Pascal. The main GCC distribution includes the source for the C,C++, and Objective-C front ends, giving GCC the ability to compile program in these languages. Additional front ends for Ada 95, Fortran 77, and Pascal are distributed separately.

G++ is the C++ compiler. G++ is a compiler, not merely a preprocessor; G++ builds object code directly from your C++ program source. There is no intermediate C version of the program.

Now GNU Compiler Collection also includes a Java Compiler.
