Making Command-Line Tools

Filed under: iPhone, LoC, programming — Mark Dalrymple @ 8:45 pm

Just in case you’re reading Learn Objective-C on the Macintosh, and you’re wanting to make a “Foundation Command-Line Utility” project in the might (or might not) be new Xcode which might (or might not) be associated with the latest iPhone excitement, you’ll probably want to look under “Command Line Utility” on the sidebar, and choose “Foundation Tool” from the project picker. They may (or may not) have moved it from previous Xcode versions. Or not. You didn’t hear it from me,


  1. With >100.000 people having downloaded the SDK, this whole “don’t talk about it, it’s under NDA” thing gets pretty ridiculous. At the very least there should be some kind of forum or mailing list, where those “in the know” can exchange their experiences.

    Or they should just make it officially a “public” beta.

  2. No argument from me :-) Everyone working in a vacuum, unable to share problems and experiences ends up with a weaker end-product, with lots of bugs that have to be fixed in “dot-two” releases, and or permanent flaws which need to be supported forever.
