CompilingWhileLearningC . My last code was written on my little llc, before hard drives and I am now attempting to learn C, then Objective C with XCode. Is there a way to write some simple code in C, compile it, and run it without 1st learning all the XCode targets, instances, etc.?
I just want to practice some of the simpler stuff, like:

#include int main() { int a, b, c; printf(“Enter the first value:”); scanf(“%d”, &a); printf(“Enter the second value:”); scanf(“%d”, &b); c = a + b; printf(“%d + %d = %d\n”, a, b, c); return 0; }

and compile/run them, before advancing to the more complicated stuff… Will the terminal do this, or XCode? and if so, how? Thanks much

Make a new “Standard Tool” project in Xcode. Building and running is a simple task, as is editing the main.c file which will be created for you. You can learn Xcode in a gradual fashion from there.

You might want to check out the “Learn C on the Macintosh” book by Dave Mark. It walks you through learning C and using Xcode.

I’ve been getting my feet wet with Cocoa by using and a text file.

It seemed easier for me to get acquainted with obj-c and Cocoa this way.

Take a look at:

And from the terminal compile the program with:

gcc -v -framework Foundation -o simpleCocoa simpleCocoa.m

Your simple example doesn’t need any included libraries, so it will compile in the terminal easily:

make code.c

Run in the terminal: ./code EnglaBenny
