Gpp Compiler by kriscross07

Install with:
    apm install gpp-compiler


This Atom package allows you to compile and run C++ and C within the editor.

To compile C or C++, press F5 or right click the file in tree view and click Compile and Run.

To compile C or C++ and attach the GNU Debugger, press F6 or right click the file in tree view and click Compile and Debug.


This package relies on a C / C++ compiler (gcc).


The GNU Compiler Collection may come with your distribution. Run which gcc g++ to find out.

If that command does not output

/usr/bin/gcc /usr/bin/g++

you will need to install it.

For RHEL-based distros, run sudo dnf install gcc gcc-c++.

For Debian-based distros, run sudo apt install gcc g++.

For Arch-based distros, run sudo pacman -S gcc.


You’ll need to install MinGW and add it to your PATH.


You’ll need to install XCode.
