I am new to programming. I only know how to use applescript but at least in that I am good. But now, I want to get involved with C. And what I need is just a program to write the code and compile it. I don't want any fancy things, just a plain text editor that can compile C in OS X. I am using OS X 10.3 and I haven't find any program to do that yet. Do you have any recommendations? I would like the programs that you mention here to be freeware, or at least shareware, because in greece it is difficult to order any program (like codewarrior for example). Can Virtual PC help me at this one? Edit: I tried google search but didn't work. Also, i am considering developer tools by apple, but I don't think that developper tools are for beginners like me. Thank you in advance.
