    On the Mac, you would use the XCode IDE ( http://developer.apple.com/technolog...ols/xcode.html ), it includes the GCC C compiler and a whole bunch of other tools. Once you have GCC installed, you can use any UNIX/Linux command-line tutorials about C compilation or use the IDE for everything.

    Yeah, XCode is free. It's a massive download. I can't recall the exact size of the last one but it's over 3GB. You get a whole bunch of apps as well as a load of terminal commands/programs, one of which is the GNU C/C++ compiler (gcc).



    You can compile programs from the terminal or you can use XCode with the interface, which uses the same compiler but it's easier to use.

    it is basically whole set of developer tool will it be ok for simple use of gcc as i think it might be kinda complex thing,i just need to execute simple programs,not much of creating new app

    Yeah it's ok for basic apps too. You should be able to install GCC yourself but it's easier just to install XCode and then you can use as few tools as you like.
