Documentation should have been installed with GCC, use "info gcc" to see the documentation.

Optionally, just use google to find the online manual, something like "gcc manual".

Open synaptic package manager and install doc-central and the gcc-doc packages. When you have done that, launch your browser and enter this address: localhost/dc. The GCC info should be under the Programming heading.
