pipalya: I think you misunderstood what ksattic meant: The existence of GCC, a free compiler, enables software authors who could not afford the commercial C compiler to write software, so because of that, as ksattic wrote, much other software would not exist without it. A new version of the compiler has no implications for existing software, how could it? Martin
