NOTE: Many gnu files are now compressed with gzip. You can tell a gzip'ed file because it has a lower-case .z or .gz rather than the capital .Z that compress uses.

Gzip is available from these same archives ftp://prep.ai.mit.edu/pub/gnu/*

Description:
There are many sites which mirror the master gnu archives which live on prep.ai.mit.edu. Please do not use the master archive without good reason.
Restriction:
Most GNU programs are CopyLeft'ed. That means that they are distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License or GNU Library General Public License. The CopyLeft is only a concern if you want to use actual GNU code in your program. Using Gcc or any of the other tools is completely safe from a copyright point-of-view with the sole exception of bison which includes GNU code in its output. If you use a GNU library, you must supply an unlinked version of your program.
