Xcode: Installing components

Gerriet M. Denkmann

After migrating to macOS 13.1 when I first started Xcode (9.1) it told me that it had to install some components.

What are these “components” and where do they live?

Also: My macOS 13 partition does not have /usr/include anymore.
Where are the include files to be found?
(Xcode has no problems, it seems to know where to look for include files).

“find” (after ignoring several folders where ordinary people have no right to look) finds:

V = Volume where Xcode lives (not the boot volume for macOS 13.1)

/V/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/[some platform].platform/Developer/SDKs/[some platform].sdk/usr/include

Should these include folders all be identical?
