Using Xcode tools to learn c programming?

I am taking an intro course to programming. Right now I'm getting by using SubEthaEdit and compiling using gcc in the Terminal. I tried figuring out how to use xcode, but I can't figure out all the options. I only need to do stuff like "Hello World!" Can I use xcode for simple programs like this?

Xcode probably can but it's definately not simple to pickup and start using. I write C code for a living and I've yet to really get a handle on how Xcode works. Of course I've also never really tried to find a reference book or guide to help me figure it out.

If you're learning programming, I'd stay away from a full IDE like Xcode until you have a handle on how C works. If you've figured out gcc you're doing pretty good already.
