    Edit your file in TextWranger (name it hello.m). Open up a Terminal, and go to the directory that you saved the file in, and enter the following commands:

    gcc -framework Foundation hello.m -o hello

    Then, to run the program enter the following command:


    You can use the following code for this example, save it as hello.m
    #import <Foundation/Foundation.h>
    int main(int argc, const char *argv[]) {
        NSAutoreleasePool *pool = [[NSAutoreleasePool alloc] init];
        NSLog(@"Hello world\n");
        [pool drain];
        return 0;
