Originally published at: https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/centos-rhel-7-redhat-linux-install-gcc-compiler-development-tools/

How do I install gnu gcc compiler and related tools such as autoconf, automake, flex, c++ compiler, and bison on a CentOS 7 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 7 server?

Create foo.c file like geek :sunglasses: ,
