C-linker for Mac without Xcode?

Am new to Rust and am running it on a 2015 MacBook Air with limited disk space.

I cannot install Xcode because it takes too much space so I am wondering if I can run a C linker on VS Code, Terminal or some other IDE for Mac?

You only need the "Xcode command line tools". Those have nothing to do with Xcode, they are just the standard Unix C and C++ toolchain, and they occupy much less space. (Apple loves to conflate everything programming-related with their IDE, but it's unnecessary for most things.)


Thank you!
I didn't know that. I learned something new today. :grinning:
