    Programming with C in Mac OSX Terminal


    I just got a new macbook and I was interested in getting back into programming with c again. I took a c programming class couple years back at my school but I forgot almost everything now. I bet it will come back quick though.

    Anyways can someone help me get setup. I know using the terminal you can program in c but I'm not sure quite how. Do I need to download a compiler? Can someone guide me through simple steps to get started, maybe write a simple program to print "Hello World" and then compile and execute that would be extremely helpful.

    Ok thanks

    Until then, do not pass go.
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge
