    Why not? Be specific. Post error messages.

    To setup a project for a basic command line tool: File > New Project > (Mac OS X) Application > Command Line Tool, and set Type to "C++ stdc++". First compile that project to make sure your environment is working properly, then plug in your code.

    Also, now that you have Xcode installed, Eclipse may start working, as Xcode provides the compiler that Eclipse needs.
