Hi,
After spending quite sometime on these forums,one thing has come to my mind time and time again.I wish to learn how to compile my own client from the source code provided so that I can improve my ability to program plus try to adapt it to my phone or other platforms that I own.I don't plan to make a new currency at this point.I'm mainly doing this just to experiment.
I have Xcode so I'll start off with that on my Mac as I find it easier (but it'll end up on the mac this way as a dmg or a .app file.)

I'll be happy to accept constructive feedback (praises,tips,criticisms,no trolls please) as this'll help me with my goal as I feel that sometimes the best way to understand something is to try to compile it yourself.

I'm not sure where this fits so if it's not in the right area,mods feel free to move this to the proper area on here.

Building Bitcoin

See doc/readme-qt.rst for instructions on building Bitcoin QT,
the intended-for-end-users, nice-graphical-interface, reference
implementation of Bitcoin.

See doc/build-*.txt for instructions on building bitcoind,
the intended-for-services, no-graphical-interface, reference
implementation of Bitcoin.

Where do you have problems? Also, the Development section might have been more appropriate...

Thanks for that Sukrim Smiley
 I'll see what I can do with compiling when I have free time.

See doc/build-osx.txt in the source tree for how to build bitcoind on osx.

See doc/readme-qt.rst  for how to build Bitcoin-Qt.

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?
