Gurgle is your friend.

Do you have a more specific question?
There are lies, damned lies, statistics - and ADC/DAC specs.
Glider pilot's aphorism: "there is no substitute for span". Retort: "There is a substitute: skill+imagination. But you can buy span".

This is the best explanation i have found.
"Compiling is the act of turning source code into object code.

Linking is the act of combining object code with libraries into a raw executable.

Building is the sequence composed of compiling and linking, with possibly other tasks such as installer creation."

Testing one two three...

While the RPi is a Microcontroller, you're asking a general operating system/programming question that is not microcontroller specific.
