I want to get all of compile error message list of gcc about C language.

I have expanded the existing FAQ with the answer below: 

with a minor nit: Grepping is not trivial at all since diagnostic strings often 
appear in calls to the large number of wrapper functions that, in turn, call 
the core diagnostic functions, which are also much more numerous than the few 
ones mentioned by Jonathan (just see diagnostic-core.h). Building a list of 
functions to grep for would be a major endeavour on its own.
