    Mac Compiler

    I give up, I've been looking forever, but can't find one that works. If anyone knows where to find a Mac compiler for c, it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks
    Matt

    What you want is an IDE not a compiler.. Try Code::Blocks

    You might also want to try Xcode as it is provided by Apple.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    What is an IDE, and if I don't use a compiler, how do I, well, compile them?

    An IDE includes a compiler as well as an environment for coding.

    XCode is a great IDE for mac and is free.

    I use Xcode on my Mac. It comes on the install disk, but is not installed by default. Insert the install disk (disk 2 I think) and install it. XCode is an IDE (integrated development environment). It comes with the gcc compiler. Works great.

    Yes. Here's the link for Leopard. http://www.apple.com/macosx/developertools/xcode.html

    If you are running Tiger, figure it out.

    As perspective pointed out, an IDE includes a compiler as well.. You can also configure some IDEs to work with different compilers. For example NetBeans can work with whatever version of javac you have. With a compiler i can write code in my favorite text editor and compile and run it from the command prompt.
