Programming languages and Linux

I have read that Linux has all kind of programming programs that come with it (does that depend on the distro?) but where are they? I have Red Hat Linux 9 (Latest one 4.0?) but don't see anything about any programming languages. C, C++, Perl, and Fortran were specifically mentioned but I can't find anything resembling a compiler or anything to that extent. Are compilers for Linux 3rd party software or is it included?

GCC is included.

It compiled C, C++, Fortran, Java, and loads of other languages.

PERL is also included, along with Python, and others.

Its their, look under the "development tools" section in add/remove programs.

to run pearl: type pearl
python: type "python"
gcc: type "gcc" for C, and "g++" for C++.
