Objective-C Editor and IDE Features
EditRocket, a Text and Source Code Editor with support for over 20 programming languages, includes a powerful Objective-C editor and IDE that strives to make Objective-C development quick and easy.
The Objective-C editor included in EditRocket includes many tools and features to aid in Objective-C development. See below for information on the Objective-C specific tools offered by EditRocket.
See the General Highlights section at the bottom of the page for more of what EditRocket has to offer.
Objective-C Compiler and Program Executer
On Mac OS X, EditRocket can compile and execute Objective-C programs. EditRocket uses the
gcc compiler to compile Objective-C programs. The gcc compiler is included in the optional installs section
on the Mac OS X System DVD. After installing gcc, EditRocket can be used to quickly compile Objective-C programs with the click
of a button.
EditRocket also can execute and display program output for Objective-C programs. Simply select the Execute Program option in the Objective-C tools menu or use the Objective-C sidekick for one-click program execution.
Objective-C Method Navigator
Jump from method to method quickly with the Objective-C Method Navigator. The navigator parses the editor contents for Objective-C methods and displays them in a clickable list. Clicking an option from the list takes the user directly to the point in the editor where the method is defined.
Code Objective-C more efficiently with the the Objective-C Sidekick. The sidekick gives users the ability to quickly enter many common Objective-C constructs into the text editor with the click of a button, or via customizable keyboard shortcuts. Some examples of sidekick options are control statements such as do while, if, else, for, while, etc. The Objective-C sidekick also includes a tab for the Objective-C Method Navigator to allow users to jump to a method in the current editor with the click of a button.
