    I am a beginner programmer and I have been learning C++ through a simple compiler in Windows XP through Vmware. I would like to switch to Xcode, however, the compile button is always grayed out. How can I fix this? I know nothing about Xcode, so please walk me through what to do step by step. Thanks!

    Did you start a project or just open a source code file?

    You have to create a project so that it builds to console...

    Also, like the above said, do some Googling. It's a programmers best friend.
