I uninstalled Xcode a couple of months ago and the residual files as well (or at least I thought so). Why am I now receiving a Software Update for Xcode 14.1?

I know it seems like a simple and dumb thing to worry about but it's driving me crazy. I don't understand why it is wanting to update. Nothing should be there in the first place.

A lot of command line tools installed with Xcode are general development tools. Like the build essentials. Make, clang, swiftc, Python

Have you deleted
/Library/Developer
And the equivalent in user directory?

Now I'm wanting to know what the command line tools for Xcode are. :)
Well, there's the following Unix/BSD/GNU/Apple-build tools

I also believe xcrun and xcodebuild are included, but xcdebug is just an empty shim that requires the full Xcode to be the active Xcode-select path. It also includes relevant SDKs and header files to build Swift, C, C++, Objective-C against Apple Libraries/Frameworks

I never really thought about why Git was on my Mac but that explains it.

I'm pretty sure I did. Is there any way to confirm?

Close System Preferences and run in Terminal:
Code:
softwareupdate -l
Does it appear there too?
