using xCode for C++?

Can someone tell me how can I use xCode for C++ development? In the preferences menu it only allows me to select AppleScript for the default languange and I can't save files in any other formats...

I wan't an editor + compilator (like xCode is..?) which works for C++. Where I could run the code, maybe? (Something like DevC++ in Windows)

I am coming from the Linux/Windows world and I know I can use g++ in the Terminal to compile files, but i don't think that is the most comfortable way.

First week of using a Mac and not a native english speaker so don't be too harsh on me.

*update: it's nothing professional, just some stuff for the university

It is Xcode, not xCode (this is not X-windows land).

Xcode is meant for working on projects, C/C++/objC projects.

You want to create a new Project instead of File via the File menu. There you can pick what type of code you want to write.

You'll want to select New... from the File menu and then, select a C++ tool project.

Remove the code you don't want and replace it with the code for your assigment. You can build and run and it should work fine.

You could also compile and run on the command line, but it's much easier to create a project and edit the files in Xcode.
