    Help a newb!

    O.K. I want to learn C++. I found a couple of online tuts. but I can't find a compiler that is one file. Yeah by the way, Im on a Mac. I have a PC but its my dads oldschool P3 running on Windows 98 but its not hooked up to the web; although I could bring it donwstairs and get in online. Which would be better to do update the PC or use my Mac. Keep in mind I also need a compiler and any good tut. site.

    Download Xcode from Apple's website.

    Personally, I usually prefer the jEdit editor as well, but Xcode has it's own fine editor.

    *edit* And standard C++ tutorials are independent of platform. Obviously, anything that is Win32 you will not be able to do. However, Mac has it's own APIs.

    Cheers
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    A mac? You didn't tell us what operating system.

    If it's OS X, g++ should be on there, no?

    If I were you, I would drag the PC downstairs because I hate programming on MAC. The PC puts your program in one file, where as the MAC will put a ton of folders and junk that the program will not run without. I also like Dev C++. If you want to stick with the MAC, if you have Panther I think it is, xCode comes with it. Just use the finder to find it.
    Good Luck,
    Adam
