Installing C/C++ Compilers in Android

Is there any way to have

C/C++ compilers
directly into the Android device ?

Something like I can adb shell the device and run
gcc
or
agcc
or something related to compiling
C\C++
src files.

I googled, but there were just speculations, please help in this !

Thanks in Advance :) :)

Answer

If you install c4droid you can make an onboard executable by finding the gcc binary and calling it. I also have root on my phone. On your phone or tablet: Install c4droid(paid app) and additionally GCC plugin(free). Install a terminal client. I use Better Term but there are free options as well.

find / -name gcc /mnt/sdcard/Android/data/com.n0n3m4.droidc/files/gcc/bin/arm-linux-androideabi-gcc

cat > test.c

#include<stdio.h>
int main(){ 
  printf("hello arm!\n");
return 0;
}

./mnt/sdcard/Android/data/com.n0n3m4.droidc/files/gcc/bin/arm-linux-androideabi-gcc test.c -o test

./test

hello arm!
