Where is; How do I get a .exe file from Xcode?
If you're asking where you can find the executable you generate in Xcode, it's under the Products folder, you should see a file with a .app extension. Right-Click (or Control-click) and select Show in Finder. That's the equivalent to the .exe file in Windows/DOS

Depends on the type of project, you might just see a binary file. If it is an app that you are building, the actual executable will be in (your app).app/Contents/MacOS/(your app)

The actual executable for an app isn't really interesting(for certain apps you can use it to launch multiple copies of the same app), but thats where it is.

I am looking for the executables that Xcode3 produced that runs on the command line in X11. I can't find a products folder or anything call codename.app.

Ah, right. Those don't have any extension and are found here: {project folder}/Build/{release mode}/ and will have the same name as their associated Xcode target.

So I googled Xcode app like I should have. My app is here.

/Users/doug/library/developer/Xcode/Deriveddata/opttree-dpzydjbljrzlqybcoxsfwukflasm/build/products/release

Give me break.

Also found out how to put it someplace reasonable.

thanks

I haven't used Xcode for anything but superficial things for a year or so and had no idea they changed the build path location. I assume that is to make it friendlier to the built in version control.
