    Ok, so I am completely new to using XCode, but have a little experience with programming, just a high school class worth that i took 3 years ago

    Anyway, I decided to learn Cocoa to try to make a good accounting program

    Whenever I open any project and try to "build and go" i get the same error, here it is

    Building target "Accounting" - (1 error)
    Precompiling Accounting_Prefix.pch (1 error)
    Couldn't run 'usr/bin/gcc-3.3' because it does not refer to an accessible executable

    Build failed for target "Accounting" using build style "Development (1 error)

    even when i open a blank foundation project, and do absolutley nothing to it I still get this message

    keep in mind that i have forgotten almost everything i knew about programming and I am just starting to use XCode

    any help will be greatly appreciated and i thank you in advance
