Most programmers with a Mac install Xcode when they need a C/C++/Objective-C compiler because Xcode includes everything you need to write C, C++, and Objective C code on Mac OS X. Xcode is a large download and is excessive if all you want to do is install GCC, LLVM, or Clang on your Mac. Kenneth Reitz has placed a compiler installer on Github that lets you install GCC, LLVM, and Clang without downloading Xcode. You can learn more by clicking the following link:


I have Xcode installed so I haven’t tested the installer, but I know some Mac-using programmers will be interested in this.
