Looking for a free and easy to use C++ compiler. I usually use the g++ compiler on the university's UNIX system but the servers are down right now because of a power outage. I need the program tonight so almost any c++ compilers will help! :D

Thanks

If you have your Mac install discs handy, you can put on Xcode, which includes GCC, a weird but functional IDE, a slew of OS-X-specific tools and all the libraries you need.

This does include a perfectly ordinary command-line GCC, if you would rather avoid the Apple tools and use a plain old text editor.


If you want the newest release of Xcode, go to Apple ADC, create a free account for yourself, and download it.

I don't have the discs right now, I'm not in my dorm room. Xcode would be fine but the download is too big and the connection right now is slow.

Look in your /Applications folder. You should see another folder called Installers. Within it, there should be a Developer Tools installer. That should eliminate the need for a download.

I don't see an Installers folder in the Applications folder.

This must be the 134890674370th time I've recommended this, but CPP Edit.
That is EXACTLY what I need. A nice lightweight program. Thanks for recommending it one more time! ;)

Thanks
