I think my Dev tools are messed up so i want to reinstall them.
I think they are messed up for several reasons, one, being that i cant get them to recognize SDL frameworks. anyways.,.. .whats the best way to go about doing this safe so that i dont mess up anything else?
I also have XDarwin and Fink installed.
ps. I'm a newbie so be simplistic with your answers please! thanks a ton!

i want to reinstall again afterwards though..

examine: Command not found.

LOL! i should have been more explicit.
open and read the file at /Developer/Tools/uninstall-devtools.pl
it's a perl script that cleans up stuff to allow you to reinstall dev tools...
# Remove the receipts of a Developer Tools installation so a subsequent
# installation of an older developer tools release will work correctly.
### This script will remove
# 1. The package receipts for Dec2001DevToolsExtra
# 2. the version.plist files in vmutils.framework and
# AppleScriptKit.framework from Apr2002DevToolsExtra
# And the Apr2002DevToolsExtra package receipts.
# 3. All files and receipts for all other Dev* packages.
# 4. A few odds and ends that aren't explicitly listed in
# the BOMs (post-install symlinks, help index files).
you'll need to be super user to run it, i think...
% sudo /Developer/Tools/uninstall-devtools.pl
to remove fink
% sudo rm -rf /sw
and comment out the call to /sw/bin/init.csh in your .tcshrc file
yes, it's mostly harmless, unless you have dependencies on the stuff

damn. :( ....and i was trying to avoid laughter....
thanks for the help anyways, though!
I made the same mistakes before, and still do a lot of different ones while learning. Don't worry about it.
Just don't give up. Slowly but surely we all learn somethings every day.

To remove the developer tools folder open the "Terminal"
Once that is open copy and paste this in:
Exactly as shown above. It will ask for your admin password type it hit enter, it will do the rest.
