Compliers for Macs?

Recommended Posts

Well... if you''re running OS X you can download the compiler and tools from http://www.opensource.apple.com/projects/darwin for free. But if you''re using anything like OS 9 or 8 or whatever I don''t know of any compilers other than the one from metroworks. Its called Metroworks Codewarrior. I hear its kinda expensive. Their website is www.metroworks.com

I have heard that Codewarior is good. And it''s not that expenisve, it got a training version (just like VC) where you aren''t alowed ot sell what you make that''s pretty cheap.

Arnt there any compliers that can run on an Imac? Please help.


Get CodeWarrior for Mac, it''s probably the best choice you have. As I haven''t had the chance to learn about any good compilers for the Mac apart from CW which I use on windows also...

If you have money, get codewarrior (pro or educational version). If not, take the time and learn how to use Apple''s developer tools for OS X. I don''t know how good it is for doing something like a game though.

i didn''t like metrowerks before my school got new comps on the windows platform but it is supposedly very good. i just didn''t like the interface, and the fact that the old macs were so slow probably didn''t help that much either, so i guess you should go with metrowerks.
