gpc - GNU project Pascal Compiler
gpc [ option | filename ]...
This man page does not contain much information about GNU Pascal
because the unstructured man page format is not well suited for
documenting a large program such a GNU Pascal. You can find the
relevant information in the GNU Pascal Manual which is avilable in
Texinfo format and formats produced from it, such as HTML, Info and
DVI. To view the Info documentation, please run ‘info -f gpc’ or open
the info file ‘gpc.info’ in your favourite info reader.
Up to date versions of the manual in various formats as well as the
compiler itself can always be found on the WWW at http://www.gnu-
