    Hi I have a problem every time I try to compile and run a command line c++ project in xcode 3 it just jumps and doesnt show the outpput window.

    I really need help I have a computer science midterm to do...and If i do not get this problem resolved in the next two hours I'll have to downgrade to tiger and use xcode 2.

    Why not just run gcc from a terminal? Especially since you seem to need to get this done soon.

    there was another thread on here about people with that problem i think.

    i think what you are missing is when you are in Xcode 3.0, click on the run menu bar on the top of the screen, and select 'console' it is about 1/3rd down the list.:apple:

    Open Xcode Preferences. Select the Debugging tab. Change the value for On Start from Do Nothing to Show Console.

    You really should be able to use gcc on the terminal, you may well need to use it when you can't get your hands on Xcode or another IDE.
