Chapter 15. Development Tools > Getting the Developer Tools

15.1. Getting the Developer Tools

When first installed onto a machine, Mac OS X actually lacks all the development tools mentioned in this chapter (as well crucial BSD-layer development tools such as gcc). You have to take a few extra steps to install them.

The fastest way into the Developer Tools suite simply involves inserting the Mac OS X Developer Tools CD-ROM, which ships with every boxed set of Mac OS X, and double-clicking its installer icon. This installs the whole /Developer hierarchy and various Darwin-side libraries and executables that make software development (or even just compiling programs from downloaded source code) possible.
