clang: warning: argument unused during compilation: '-fobjc'
ld: warning: directory not found for option '-Foundation'
ld: framework not found -Foundation
clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)


Initially i realized that clang was missing. So after a google search I installed "command line tools" from xcode preference. Now I'm getting this error. Can someone tell me what it means?


I'm following the example in stephen kochan's programmin guide and using the following command to compile from command line...


Neeravs-MacBook-Pro:Stepen Kochan neeravkothari$ clang -fobjc -framework -Foundation main.m -o prog1



Thanks for your time going through this...
