    I have been programming on my linux machines for years, after compiling my program main.cpp i could goto the directory and ./main to run my program.

    In Xcode 4.5.1 I have noticed it wants to run my command line programs inside xcode using its "Command Line" simulator. That is nice and all, but when I am done coding I ultimately want to be able to execute my code in the terminal.

    When I googled this I kept finding issues about launching xcode from terminal, but not actually running the project.

    So far I love the Xcode interface, and look forward to using it, but how in the world do I finalize my project so I can run it? lol thanks

    Look through the menus in Xcode. Look especially at the "Product" menu.

    Thanks for your reply, but I have looked there. I wouldnt be asking if It had been that easy for me. Product > Generate Output is where I looked first.

    Well, that is after i tried 'Run' and saw it was running in Xcode. Then I looked at Product > Build For

    On the side panel of xcode (left side) where the source code is, there should be a Product folder, open that and right click n hit Show in finder (or reveal)

    You can also open up the Organizer in xcode's Window drop down menu and get it from the Projects tab
