    OK - I found the XCode installer that was present on the PB when I got it (Applications/Installers/XCode IIRC) and ran that tonight (it completed without any errors). However, I have no idea what the IDE is called or where it's located :confused: I dug around the Apple developer site and found nice screenshots of the IDE and how to use it to edit code, but it never mentioned *how* to start the IDE.

    So, can someone point me towards starting the IDE? I popped the OS X disc that came with the machine into the drive, but didn't see anything obvious on there (it wanted to reboot to install, actually) about installing XCode/IDE/etc.

    Also, are there any good "Mac development beginner" type sites that I should know of?

    Thanks!
    Mike

    You'll find the Xcode IDE in /Developer/Applications/Xcode. But don't ask me how to use it :eek:

    Edit: There's an article called "Getting started with Cocoa programming for Mac OS X" available here, it might help :)

    Thanks for the pointers -- I found it. I guess I was expecting a new "Development" folder on the desktop or in the Applications or something like that.

    Um, there IS a Developer folder at the root level (i.e. Mac HD/Applications or Mac HD/Developer) and that's where Xcode, the IDE, is located. I highly recommend some tutorials and exploring... Panther et.all come with a Developer Tools CD with the information, tutorials, sample code and more.
