[ccache] how to use ccache

before doing that, which gcc shows:

]$ which gcc

and after these:
cp ccache /usr/local/bin/
ln -s /usr/local/bin/ccache /usr/local/bin/gcc
ln -s /usr/local/bin/ccache /usr/local/bin/g++
ln -s /usr/local/bin/ccache /usr/local/bin/ccwhich gcc shows:
]$ which gcc

seems it has been successfully installed and linked. Is it the end? If I use "make" without any argument or prefix or something else, will the compiler use cache???

It should be in /usr/local/bin.

Just insert '/local' after '/usr' in the instructions from Francois
and it should work Ok.
