XCode has it's own editor with benefits over TextEdit. I would recommend using the XCode editor.
You say you have installed XCode, so you have the C compiler already installed.
Look under XCode's 'Build' menu for building and running code. As an alternative, you can use Terminal by setting your folder location and executing C build commands. This 'C Tutorial for Cocoa
' discusses shows some of the compiler commands. You'll have to look for some Terminal reference since I don't know of any. To change directories you use the cd command. Open Terminal, in the Utilities folder, and type 'man cd' without the quotes. man is the command used to get help on other commands.
Type the following into Google to find some help on learning to use Terminal
