If I want to learn to write C++ code ON a Mac but FOR another platform, like Playstation, what software (compiler, etc.) should I get. Are compilers specific to both the platform you are using to write the code AND the platform the software will end up on? thanks, Randy

Compiler: CodeWarrior or GCC, because they are available on the most platforms.

Not entirely. There are these nifty things called cross-compilers, which allow you to develop on platform A for platform B, but you still need either an emulator or an actual machine running the second platform to try out your application.

Thanks to Kylotan for the idea!
