    Just a quick question. What is the point of the .1 file that's automatically created when making a new command line utility tool in Xcode?

    Thanks. But I'm still a bit puzzled as to what the point of the file is exactly.

    Sorry, I'm quite new to all this.

    Explains both the point of the file, and why the '.1' extension is used. :)
