C compiler for an iPhone

Good Afternoon Everyone;

I apologize for posting off-topic - but there are so many brilliant people on here that I'm sure some can make a recommendation of a good C compiler that will run under iOS.

regards,

tony

   I own an old iPad (2), but I do very little with it, and so far that
includes having done no software development on or for it, so I know
nothing, but my dim impression was that software development for iOS was
done on a Mac using Xcode (which provides emulators for iOS devices).

   If there _is_ a C compiler which actually runs under iOS, then it's a
complete mystery to me how I'd use it.  Knowing nothing, I'd try a Web
search for something like, say:

      iOS software development

and see if anything other than Xcode appears.  Otherwise, get thee to
the App Store for a free download.

   I hope that you find one.

Hi Steven;

There are A LOT of them on the app store. Most of them are free - but I wouldn't mind paying for a good one.

   Well, sort of.  A useful answer might depend on exactly what you
intend to do with this compiler.  If you're trying to build an iOS
application, then you may not want a compiler which operates only in a
sandbox.
