Doesn't work. I have GCC installed. I can open terminal and type "c++ hello.cpp" and it will compile it, but for some reason it says that I still need GCC.

The requirements need to be corrected. The README file states you need to have gcc installed from the developer tools - this is not included in the requirements list here. This would be helpful to know before downloading

This is really Shareware ($20). Nothing is more annoying when a software package is identified as FREE and then discovered to be SHAREWARE. There is nothing wrong with SHAREWARE. I just want to know what I'm getting into BEFORE I get into it
