So I'm taking an intro comp sci course, we're doing C/C++. I usually use linux, which of course has g++ installed by default. I was rather astonished that it wasn't installed on OS/X by default. Then I was flabergasted when I learned I had to install something that was going to take up 10GB of my hard drive, when all I wanted was g++. I don't need Xcode, I don't need anything fancy for developing software for Macs, we're not doing anything remotely GUI based... So I'm really confused as to why I can't just install g++ without all the extra stuff from Xcode. My biggest objection is that I only had 20GB free, and now half of that is being used by this crazy huge program. From what I hear, I can download other c++ compilers... the problem is, I have to make 100% sure it will compile with no warnings or erros in g++, as per our assignment requirements.
