In this chapter we discuss software construction tools including the venerable GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) compilers, source code configuration systems (CVS, SVN and git), as well as the GNU Build Tools. Automatic build management tools GNU gmake and SCons are described with examples. The Bugzilla defect tracking system is described; incidentally, this book had a Bugzilla page during its development for issue tracking. Source code editors and IDEs (including Emacs, Kdevelop and Eclipse) are shown as well as debugging, documentation and profiling tools.
