I have some reasonable programming experience with a program called IDL. However I'd consider myself a complete rookie with the technical side of things.
I'm trying to teach myself some C++ from online tutorials. I have a mac (leopard) and I'm trying to run the most basic 'hello world' script.
My problem is as follows:
First, is there a way I can check to see if I already have a C compiler? I'm pretty sure I downloaded one years back. I'm quite happy to run everything through a terminal but I can't remember the call sequence.
I'm currently downloading xcode3 from the apple website. Do I need anything else to make things work? I'm not sure how advanced I'll get, but for now I just want to perform the basic commands.
Thank-you for any help you can give, I'm already a little out of my depth
