(1) There is no direct relationship of what FBtoC does to Xcode, so essentially you would need to learn how to use source code with Xcode.

It is possible, but FBtoC does not provide any automatic mechanism to implement your goal via the source code in build_temp.

With the exception of the debugger ( gdb ), FBtoC does NOT use Xcode. It calls the compiler directly ( gcc ). It is possible to eliminate the use of FB source code and just compile with the C code in build_temp. It is fairly simple to do and I'd be happy to re-post the steps Robert posted. However, it is not related to Xcode and assumes you want to program in C. The debugger mechanism in FBtoC creates a basic Xcode project only for the purpose of debugging and nothing more. Brian S.
