Man Linux: Main Page and Category List


       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 ‘’ 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-
