    Question How to begin creating programs with C?

    I want to create my first program, and I don't know how to do it. I've been practicing with terminal, but now I want to physically create a software, like a calculator for example, by designing and putting in the buttons on the GUI and writing the code for it. I am very new to programming, so could anyone provide me with instructions on how I can do this?

    I am using xCode 12.2 and have a mac. I've tried looking this up but I'm not getting any results and not sure how to even keyword it. I think SDL library was needed so I downloaded that through terminal, but I don't even know what that really is.

    I guess you start here and get comfortable for a nice long read.

    The framework used to be called cocoa, but that was a couple of OS versions ago.

    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
