Topic: XCode tools required - what size?
It just galls me to have to install XCode at 26GB in order to have the toolset needed for Simply Fortran. SF isn't the only app that needs them. I think Python needs them installed too.
We chatted about installing the tools many posts back but I haven't found that post to review it. Maybe it was just an email.
Can I delete XCode and install the required tools with HomeBrew just the terminal app and save gigabytes of space?
My concern is all the pathname shenanigans I deal with using the terminal app. For example, I saw a YouTube that showed the command needed to install the tools via the Terminal app - I'll have to re-find it. If I install it that way, will Simply Fortran be able to find/use them as needed? No "path" issues?
If XCode weighs in at 26GB, how much would I save by just installing the toolset Simply Fortran (and other apps) need?
