HELP: I have no idea how to compile!


I have just recently decided to learn how to program... I have found some tutorials but the problem is this: I have no idea how to compile the programs once I have written them and thus I find myself at a halt.

If any of you gurus out there or other knowledgeable persons, could please tell me how to compile these programs, I would be very much obliged!

I have an ibook, and I don't have easy access to the program developer tools cd or whatever that is (doesn't that have something to compile with?)... are there any other options. Oh yeah, I have bbedit but i have no idea what the program is for or what it can do... though I hear it can compile....

anywho thanks


You could start with Python or Java. The Python download is not so big, and I think you have Java on your system without the devtools. Check for Python.

BBEdit can't compile, it can only edit files.
