Sign up for a free account and download the developer tools (assuming you're
looking to do work on OSX).

Does that come with the command line compiler?

That occured to me, but I wanted to avoid the 300 mb download, as I've
already downloaded a lot just setting up this iBook, and shaw yells at
me if I download too much. I'm already signed so I could get java 1.4.1.

Thank you.

Yes, the Developer Tools includes the gcc compiler which can be invoked
from the command line.

You might already have the Developer Tools. If you bought the full OS X
'Jaguar' package, it includes the Developer Tools on a separate CD. If
you bought a new Mac that had 10.2 pre-installed, there should be a disk
image on your hard disk which contains the Developer Tools.

I bought an iBook that had OS 10.2.1 pre-installed, but I can't see the
disk image. I've looked over the cd's that came with it too, no luck.

I'm willing to download it, and I don't need it right away as Java is my
language of choice, but there's some stuff that Java is just overkill for.

Thanks for the information.

Look in /Applications/Installers/

However, the disk image probably has the older version of the Developer
Tools. Getting the updated version (December 2002) of the tools is
worthwhile for the bug fixes and features - I know Project Builder had
many issues and the new tools offer support for external editors.

It's funny because it's flawed.

I only need to write command line stuff for now. I'm mostly playing with
data structures atm. As long as the C standard libraries work, I'm fine.

aha thank you... the post said it was a disk image, so I was looking for
.dmg files. :)
