Hello,
I need to do some development work on my mac. Its an old macbook and I have MAC OS X 10.5.1 installed. Apparently the xcode suite of tools require higher versions. I don't really care about xtools all I need is to be able to compile and run my programs. Is there some way I can download a compiler for C++ in my operating system? Do I need to build it from scratch?

thanks,

Sam

You need the GCC compiler, that comes as a part of X-Tools. It can also be found on the Mac OS installation disk.
As for something that is compatible with OS 10.5.1 :
Xcode 2.5 Developer Tools
Xcode 2.5 is an update release of Xcode developer tools, providing bug fixes over Xcode 2.4.1. Xcode 2.5 can be installed on Tiger (Mac OS X 10.4) or on Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5).

So thats the one you need. Here is the link for it:

You have to be registered as an Apple Developer to get it, you can do that for free here:

If you're doing development work, shouldn't you be running an updated version of Leopard at the very least?
