Preface

From the moment it first published Mac OS X, Apple Computer has made a complete suite of application-development tools available to every Macintosh user. Since Mac OS X version 10.3, those tools have been led by Xcode, the development environment that Apple’s engineers use to develop system software and such applications as Safari, iTunes, Mail, and iChat. These same tools are in your hands.

  • A solid text editor with syntax coloring and API-based code completion

  • The industry-standard gcc compiler suite

  • Tools for gaining detailed insights into optimizing performance
