    Is there a source i.e. book or article that explains how to start using xcode for C++...a very basic, clear explanation?

    Do you need information on using Xcode to write standard C++ programs (example: you're taking a C++ programming course) or do you need information on writing Mac applications in C++?

    If you need information on using Xcode to write standard C++ programs, I have an article that walks you through the creation of a simple C++ program in Xcode.

    I don't know of any tutorials for writing Mac applications in C++. You either have to use Cocoa, writing your user interface code in Objective C and your other code in C++, or you have to learn Carbon. There are no up-to-date books in Carbon.

    Learning Objective-C and Cocoa

    If you are going to write mac OS X only applications Objective-C and the Cocoa framework using XCode is probably the way to go. Cocoa Framework code won't port to other platforms.
    Have said that O'Reilly Have a book "learning Cocoa" which is pretty good. There is also a free apple getting started guide which is probably a good place to start before you spend any cash on a book.

    It all depends what you want type of app you want to build... in the end.
