If you navigate into the application package and execute the binary file directly, the Terminal displays a ZeroLink error.

Obviously the developer forgot to disable Xcode's ZeroLinking when he compiled this version.

Yea I asked in the mac scripter forums and found out that I just needed to change the project from development to deployment. I guess they just introduced that in the newest Xcode because i've never had to do that before.

Same here. Fails to launch on my G4 PowerBook.

I guess this is good for entry-level programming classes, where you don't really want to bog the user down with a full IDE or a complex editor like emacs.

This would be much more useful if it had syntax highlighting. Or an easy way to manage .h files for that matter.

I know this is for simple and quick code editing (as opposed to the massive overhead involved in starting up Xcode projects), but you really can't do without syntax highlighting.

As is, you might as well use emacs or vim.

Decent little C/C++ editor/compiler. If you just need something to write a small program and compile it on a Mac, this app is great.
