Edit your file in TextWranger (name it hello.m). Open up a Terminal, and go to the directory that you saved the file in, and enter the following commands:

gcc -framework Foundation hello.m -o hello

Then, to run the program enter the following command:


You can use the following code for this example, save it as hello.m

#import <Foundation/Foundation.h>

int main(int argc, const char *argv[]) {
NSAutoreleasePool *pool = [[NSAutoreleasePool alloc] init];

NSLog(@"Hello world\n");

[pool drain];
return 0;
