Hey everyone I have some basics in c/c++ I recently switched over to a Apple iMac, I am loving it! Well before I was using visual studios and I learned xcode is apples compiler and I would like to start learning to use it but seems very different. Does anyone have or know a beginners tutorial on how to use xcode rather to program a c/c++ environment or in objective-c?

If i create a project can i mix the two files and program in both languages for my projects? I have no knowledge of obj-c yet but looking forward to it and perhaps try some iphone development.

Am I able to just run some code through terminal like on visual studios ?

But for now I just would like to get familiar with xcode and how it works.

Thanks for your time

What you both want are two books; Programming in Objective-C 2.0 by Stephen Kochan and Cocoa Programming For Mac OS X by Aaron Hillegass. The first book teaches you (mostly) about making command line programs in Obj-C (using XCode); there's also a couple of chapters at the end that introduces you to Cocoa and iPhone programming. The second book teaches you how to program (using Obj-C) for Cocoa so you can make applications with full GUIs.

EDIT: If you had checked the stickies at the top of the Programming forum section it will have told you about these books and also pointed you to some tutorials on Obj-C programming.
