C Programming on an iBook
on Jul 27, 2005 at 4:23:42 am

Aloha,

I want to to teach myself C programming (call me a masochist). I'm wondering what compilers are compatible with my iBook. Seems like most compilers are made for Windows. What's the best route for programming in C using OS X.

I'm on a 700 MHZ G3 iBook, 10.3.9, 256 MB SDRAM, 7 gigs available.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Peace,
Dean

Dave Mark's classic "Learn C on the Macintosh" has been updated with an OS X edition, in eBook form, at Spiderworks.

With its BSD Unix underpinning you can just use the terminal, emacs or vi and run gcc from the command line all right out of the box. If you install XCode you will have an integrated development environment (IDE) to work with that will help you keep code organized and target different platforms and use different languages. You have access to C, C++, Java, Objective-C and other script like things like Perl, PHP, etc.

In short, go nuts.

Metrowerks is a long time mac developer, and used to be THE place to go for development tools, but now XCode is a very viable option.

Hm. Scratch the Metrowerks thing, they are no longer updating the Mac IDE with the move to Intel...
