Help with the "C" command
(ok first post....repetitive questions....just shoot me!)
This question is probably asked around 4 gzillion times, but well let me make that 4 gzillion and one.
Alright i've borrowed my friend's "C for dummies" and going through the first chapter. I run on a OS X and use Xcode for some odd reason.
So the book asks me to save something with .c extension then compile/link and then run.....now im confused!
is Xcode both the text writer for source code AND the complier/link AND the run/tester ?
and in that book they've skipped the part that i turn the coding into an actual app ( what extension in the first place?!). Regarding the actual running, (on windows at least) it talks about prompting the .c file with DOS i think, can Terminal on OS X do the same? i only use terminal for fancy navigation and move/add/copy/delete just for fun.
I'll be happy to get some help here :D
