basically, I hadone class and my professor gave us a linkto download a c++ compiler for windows, and I emailed him asking about one for Mac, and he told me I would have to search the internet for one as he has no experience with mac. so i did some searching and determined i should download xcode? NOW im still downloading it, but im fairly certain i wont be able to work it. im not a computer programming person, im only taking this course to satisfy my math credit requirements, but i do think it is something i may enjoy once i learn it. im really confused, and my prof wrote the textbook we use himself so i dont really find it to be much help. Honestly, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
