gcc or similar compiler needed.


I am looking for a nice easy to install a compiler on my
redhat 8 machine. I would like something that is easy
to install and requires as few other package dependencies
as possible. Thanks.

just install gcc from your distro cd's. it's sitting there waitingn for you...

you don't get a choice in it i'm afraid, you need gcc and everythign that it requires.

If dependencies are a problem in general, try installing apt-get.
