    Hey everybody, I would use XCode but it won't run on OSX Mountain Lion.

    Every time i try to download it it says the current version of OSX is too new.

    As a registered developer, you should know where to get the right XCode version from. Alternatively, if you are using a pirated version of Mountain Lion, then you get exactly what you deserve.

    Always an alternative: http://gcc.gnu.org/

    Better is: go and download the matching XCode to your OS version from developer center at Apple; they have one.

    Or you just wait until ML is officially out and Apple put XCode in AppStore.

    QT and Eclipse

    QT is cross platform, as is Eclipse.

    XCode is an IDE, not a compiler. The latest version of GCC or G++ should do you just fine...

    This here is the "Mac Programming" forum. Part of programming is ethical behaviour, including respect for any NDAs that you might be under.

    If you have the just released version of ML, you can get the proper version of xCode from the Mac App Store.

    You are being wearily pedantic and not contributing positively to this thread.

    Unlike you, what I did was see through his apparent mis-labeling/mis-understanding of what X-code is, and realize what he was actually asking for.

    One thing needing avoidance is know-it-alls bantering about terminology when a non-expert asks a simple question from a forum the members of which he hopes are more knowledgable than he.

    QT, as in QT Creator, or the QT SDK, is a development environment as well as the name of its framework.

    This thread is about programming. Programming doesn't work when you're not pedantic.

    *pssst*.

    He's also wrong. QT extends C++ with signals, emits and slots. As such, any QT code needs to be passed through moc, the Meta-Object Compiler.

    ;)
