I use the standard one that ships with Xcode. I'm a beginner, so I'm not too worried about the variances between the different compilers.

I use gcc 3.3 from the gcu project. I'd use it any system. Its tried and true. I am slowly looking at 4.0 though. It's almost ready.

Quick, yes. But why is it dirty? :confused:

g++ because it works with xcode, and I can make custom makefiles to compile on linux and os x without a problem. although tracing memory leaks between the two system. now that is fun...

Most people go for the free one : GNU g++. You can get a lot better code from some commercial compilers, but they cost more than most individuals and small companies are willing to pay.

CodeWarrior 5 LE if I want to start up classic. g++ otherwise. But g++ produces some funky code and handles templetes very poorly in this version.

So I just stick to Objective-C. :p
