It’s relatively quick (it cut a lot of volatile and non-essential packages from the initial download), it’s easy, and it’s completely free. Developing for Apple platforms is a little more complicated if you want to install an iOS app, even for testing, or to distribute your work through an App Store. That requires a program membership, and you saw what the options are and how to proceed. Now that you have a usable installation of Xcode, it’s time to see what you have. 1 .

Run it. 3). 3 When you run an application in Xcode, the Debug navigator is selected, and the Debug area appears at the bottom of the screen. The right half of the debug area is a console for communicating with the passer-rating tool. If all has gone well, it should show something like this: comps, atts, yards, TDs, INTs: which is just what the printf() was supposed to do. passer-rating waits for input, so click in the console area and type the following: 10 20 85 1 0 Something went wrong.
