Apple has not documented any way to plug in compilers other than those
that come with Xcode. That doesn't mean that one cannot do so, just
that Apple won't tell you how.
However - while it would be some work - you could write an external
"compiler" that plugs into CodeWarrior. That would just be a wrapper
around the clang command-line tool, as well as the various
The current FreeScale CodeWarrior only runs on Windows, I think, but
you could write a clang plugin for CodeWarrior 8 or 9.
Am I correct that CodeWarrior Pro 9 for OS X was free as in beer?
I have CodeWarrior Pro 8 for both Windows and Mac. It's quite nice.

That's an IDE concept I still prefer: individual editor windows, a separate project window etc. I really don't get that fashion of monolithic interfaces that block everything behind them and make it complicated to do copy/pasting among documents.
