    Interactive GCC (IGCC) is described as 'IGCC is a real-eval-print loop (REPL) simulator for C/C++ programmers. It allows you to type C++ commands which are immediately compiled and executed. Underneath it uses the normal GCC exe for compiling' and is an app in the Development category. There are three alternatives to Interactive GCC (IGCC) for Linux, Mac, Windows and BSD. The best alternative is Cling, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Interactive GCC (IGCC) are Ch (Freemium) and CINT (Free, Open Source).
