well, anything that would run on a mac. the idea is that i could work on the code from anywhere, even on a pc, and then compile it at home.

is this even possible?

If you have a .mac account, could you use your iDisk for hosting the file? If so, you could access it from anywhere on the planet.

You should have mentioned Cocoa in the beginning

If you want to do Cocoa programming online, your best bet it so setup your home computer with SSH so you can login from work and then you can edit files with vi, and compile with gcc in a Terminal-like app, such as PuTTY (Windows).

If you are a beginner I would recommend against vi. Pico is much more user friendly CLI text editor.

Here's another thought. USB flash drive in your pocket.

well it doesn't have to be Cocoa. actually Java might be better, since i'll probably be taking a class in it next semester.
