iPhone development without using the Xcode IDE

  • Hi all,
    I have the question whether it is possible to develop iPhone Apps without the use of the Xcode IDE. For example you could use the classic unix development tools manually, instead of using them full automatic by pressing the "build and run" button.
    It is just curiosity which brings me to this question. I don't want to abstain from Xcode and his functions.

  • As far as building from the command line is concerned, you can build your project without the IDE via the xcodebuild.  There's also a similar tool for running Package Maker.

    These are useful for automated builds.  If you're looking at using Makefiles, configure and similar tools, I wouldn't bother.  Xcode works really well once you put in the time to learn how to use it.
