Understanding Apple’s Programming Tools

  • Wallace Wang


To write a program, you need at least two tools: an editor and a compiler. An editor acts like a word processor and lets you write instructions using a programming language such as Objective-C. A compiler converts your instructions (called code) and compiles (or translates) them into a language that computers can understand, which is called machine code. When you buy a program, that program is stored in a file that contains nothing but machine code.
