hey guys

I'm in a C Programming Class, and right now I'm using cygwin which I do not like. How do I use terminal in Mac? What editor do I use so I can just name it as .c (because I know text editor has many extensions)? How do I compile it using the gcc code? Thanks

I just need it to do the basic stuff...
QUOTE Thanks

Install the Cocoa developer tools that came with your install disc. You can tell TextEdit to save the files in plain text and without the .txt extension using it's preferences. Then to compile just use the cc or gcc command. You can look that up via the man pages while you are in Terminal.
