My Setup:
Chocolat v1.2
OS X 10.7.4

I'm using Chocolat to write C/C++/ObjC code. I have saved the file I am working on with the appropriate file extension (e.g. .c, .m, etc) such that Chocolat correctly recognizes the type of code I am writing.

When I select the Build or Run menu items, nothing seems to happen.

Is it possible to see Build or Run results in some kind of output or console window in Chocolat? Specifically, I'm curious about C/ObjC/C++, but also curious if there is a more general feature for this in Chocolat.

I was kind of expecting that when I Build, I would be able to see compiler or lint output in some kind of window or console. And when I Run, I would see stdout and stderr output. Does this feature exist in Chocolat currently?

This is a programming question and, as such, belongs on Stack Overflow. – CajunLuke Aug 16 '12 at 0:38
This is not a programming question. This is a question about a user interface feature of a Mac application. Therefore it belongs here. – Todd Ditchendorf Aug 16 '12 at 5:55
Did you try installing the extras or command line tools for Choclate? Their doucmentation is shady at best, IMO not worth $40+ at this point, I would try contacting the Developer for help... – MrDaniel Aug 16 '12 at 11:25
Good idea MrDaniel. I had not thought of/installed that. Unfortunately, after selecting the "Install Command Line Tool…" menu item, and running the installer, nothing has changed. Still no output in the app nor in – Todd Ditchendorf Aug 16 '12 at 16:46
