Afternoon everyone! I am looking to relearn programming, as I once knew how back about 4 years ago. I took a summer seminar in video game programming at DigiPen and I really enjoyed it but since then I haven''t found the time to program. Now though I have a bit more time to actually sit down and be creative with numbers and letters! I was wondering if there are any C/C++ compilers for Mac OS X (I will hopefully be purchasing a PC before summer), but in the meantime, I would like to start with perhaps VB and C and perhaps by the time I get my PC, I will have a good working knowledge of C and will be ready to move into C++. I''m hoping I get my PC soon, as our school provides MS Visual Studio .net for free to all students. Vlad Tepes

You can get codewarrior for macos. I''ve got the learnign edition myself (for macos 9.1, though). I bought a book called ''mac game programming'' which says that macosx has a built in c++ compiler, I think it''s called ''project builder'' though don''t quote me on that.

Mac OS X comes with a complete development environment. (It''s on a separate disk, and you need to install it by hand, but still). Also, the Apple Developer site (http://developer.apple.com) has tons of demos, and the tools are available for download.

I wonder why you''re asking about OS X, though - that''s not available for PCs.
