Do i need Xcode to install the command line tools for mac osx 10.9?
What specific command line tools are you talking about?
Terminal is already installed and can be found via Spotlight or in the Utilities folder (CMD+SHIFT+U while in Finder) inside the Applications folder (CMD+SHIFT+A).
i mean like gcc and java tools jdk?
You can download them here.
Only if you need to use them.
i thought there was a different way then pay 99.00 for make my own mac app.i type gcc in the term and ask me if i want to install the other command tools from apple is this the other way i could.But sound like i got to download from the app store?
You pretty much have three choices: Xcode from the App Store, rolling your own using MacPorts, or rolling your own from source. Xcode is the easiest, followed by MacPorts. Terminal is there already, and I believe Quartz provides X11 from mountain lion and newer.
But those would be your options.
this what i been read on google
could i do this without Xcode?
Xcode is free, the command line tools are free. What's your issue?
Will i was asking can i do it without Xcode?I thought that was not a prob..
You can make a free Apple Developer account and then download the command line tools using the link that was posted above: https://developer.apple.com/downloads/index.action?=command line tools
You do not need to either pay $99 nor install Xcode.
Did you follow these steps to see if they work?
no not yet i plan to.and thank for the help.
Typing "gcc" into a terminal window will prompt you as shown in the link you found, and this works with 10.9.x.
No need for Xcode. Open Terminal and run the command:
This will install the commandline tools (it is the official way of doing it; running one of the commands such as gcc will do something similar).
However, some tools (such as Macports) like having the entire Xcode suite.
