Hello,

I'm thinking about installing and learning xcode. Can someone tell me the file size please. I hear it may more than 2 gigs!

XCode without the iPhone SDK is 1.5gigs I believe. With the iPhone SDK its around 2.3gigs.

Sorry for the not 100% accurate numbers but its close.

This question depends entirely on which XCode components you plan to install. If you do a minimal install, without any of the documentation, examples etc. Then it can be a very small installation. If you throw all of it on, include the iPhone SDK and anything else you want it can swell up to 2.5GB or so. I think it can be made to fit in 512MB if you remove absolutely everything except the Core Applications.
