How to read input file for C++ in Xcode

If you are currently a student from some college and studying computer science, you have to have an integrated development environment (IDE) to do your HW or to practice some coding on your computer. Many colleges might require students to use CodeBlocks, Visual Studio, or any other IDE because some college do not even provide iOS devices like an iMac. However, if you are a Mac user, using CodeBlocks or others might be uncomfortable for you. Additionally, you might have considered how to use Xcode, but there are some tricky parts in how to use Xcode. Some of my friends also gave up using Xcode because of that even they are Mac users. I have personally been using Mac for a while, so in this article, I am talking about how to input file for C++ in Xcode for people who are stuck on it.

First of all, you open the text editor you have on your Mac.

I personally use a text editor called Atom from Github.

At this time, I use these data. You can use any kinds of data in the file. After you put some data in the file, press “Command + S.” Then, you can save your file anywhere you want. In this article, I saved the file on the desktop because it is easy to find it out.

Next, here is the trickiest part and different from any other IDE.

  1. Go to your Xcode and follow some requirements from Xcode.
  2. After you get that window you can code, there are 2 icons that look like file on the left side. One of them is the name of the file you set up. And another one is named “product”
  3. When you click on that, a little another icon comes up and the name is exactly same as the name of the first file you set up.
  4. Right click on that icon, and click on “Show in Finder”

5. Drag the file to the place like the image.

If you get these steps done correctly, let’s get started with coding!

Here is what I code simply.

You do not have to code same as mine.

Finally, let’s run it!

Why you should start learning from Python

3 Reasons Why You Should Start Learning from Python Programming

Have you ever learned how to code?

Are you seeking a new skill to get a better job?

If your schedule allows it, you probably have some time to learn Python. Python is a tool that will provide you the necessary steps to improving your job marketability. I will be showing you why Python is the strongest programming language for beginners in this article.

1. Python code is really readable and easy to learn

This might be the first time you ever coded, but it’s ok. Python is the easiest programming language to learn and it’s being used by a lot of veteran programmers, so even if you are beginning of a programmer, I strongly recommend to study Python before you study other languages like C++, Java, or any other ones because you will be caught in confusion and stagnation. On the other hand, you might have the experience with code, but have never coded in Python. Do not worry about it. The concept of Python is actually really simple for a person who has experience in other programming languages. Even if you start studying Python with a limited schedule, you will be able to become a Python programmer in a couple of months later.

2. Python is being major programming by big companies

I met a lot of computer engineer guys who are working in big companies and even startups in Silicon Valley, and most of them said that Python is really useful to develop what they want to do in my interviews. Additionally, Google and Facebook are surely using Python to develop their products, so by studying Python, your chances of getting a job or work at big companies might be expanded.

3. Python covers a wide range

Python is a flexible language that has a wide variety of uses. For example, Python is able to develop web application, use machine learning algorithms, gain useful info from big data and etc. In addition, there are many libraries that you can install for what you develop. For example, if you install a library called Pygame, you can build your own game easily, and if you install another library called Pyserial, you can move Arduino as we As you can see, Python is able to make you fun to develop something and it is an important skill for recent business analytics.
