This repository has the Dockerfile for source build of gcc 7.
Currently gcc 6+ is required to run many Fortran 2003/2008 programs successfully due
to bugs in earlier versions. Also includes standard openmpi and lapack libraries,
plus basic build tools.
There are gcc6 and gcc8 branches for the latest stable other versions..
The devel branch has the latest master build (at time of Docker build).

To make an interactive shell ready for compiling you local code at /local/code/source
docker run -v /local/code/source:/virtual/path -i -t cmbant/docker-gcc-build /bin/bash
Navigating into /virtual/path in the bash shell, you can then run make etc as normal, acting
on your local files.
