distcc: A fast, free distributed C/C++/... compiler frontend1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

Distcc is a program to distribute builds of C, C++, Objective C or Objective C++ code across several machines on a network. distcc should always generate the same results as a local build, is simple to install and use, and is often two or more times faster than a local compile.

Distcc does not require all machines to share a filesystem, have synchronized clocks, or to have the same libraries or header files installed. They can even have different processors or operating systems, if cross-compilers are installed.
