My teacher won't (can't) help me learn to program C on xcode. I got xcode today, and have never tried programming before (barely). But I'm a science-student in College and weriously don't want to buy a pc just to learn C-programming...!

SO I can't even find the right place to start. I watched a tutorial where the "tutorialist" opened a command line tool. I don't have that template, and can't figure out how to get started. I basically need to get to the window where I can write to main.c

Any help - will most probably help...!



Xcode 3.1.2, Macbook pro Snow Leopard 10.6.8

Do a web search on Objective-C programming. You will find numerous tutorials, some of which will include using xcode.

Hey! It actually sounds like you are looking for basic C programming, not objective-C (which is used for OSX and iPhone development). Here is a nice page with an easy example of how to create a project and do a basic Hello World example:
How to create a C program in xcode

Hope that helps!
