If you know how to create any iPhone application, for example, Window-based application, so you can modify it and make a non-GUI application.

1. In Xcode you create new project with Window-based application  template (for iPhone). Choose a name, for example "ConsoleApp".
2. Delete MainWindow.xib file, delete ConsoleAppAppDelegate.h and .m files.
3. In ConsoleApp-Info.plist delete the last line "Main nib file based name".
4. Delete the line with UIApplicationMain call. Change the last line 'return 0;' instead of 'return retVal;'
5. Write the program in the main.m file. For example, add printf("Hello");


#import <UIKit/UIKit.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {
    
    NSAutoreleasePool * pool = [[NSAutoreleasePool alloc] init];
    printf("hello");
    [pool release];
    return 0;
}

Open in new window

Hi there;

I have seen that program but the issue is that everyone seems to complain about the header file inclusion. So, any tricks?

Or have you tried for it?

AppStore?
I think,  in this case it's even forbidden to think about the AppStore.
I do not want to compile any program on iPhone. Just because this particular problem is not interesting for me.
I heard about this trick a year ago and so found something similar and posted a link for you.

Ok, so the only way is that I must do the jailbreaking thing...Right?

Yes, this terminal-style compiler is supposed to work only on the jailbroken phone.
Maybe, one day someone will make an editor and a C-compiler for iPhone. I do not know why. Maybe, for iPad?
