Does the upgrade dvd include xcode?

I need the latest version of xcode to develop for my iphone version, but I'd like to avoid a 2+ Gig download of the SDK. Is it on the Snow Leopard upgrade DVD?

    Yes. After you install Snow Leopard and have it running, go back to the install DVD and within Utilities you will find installation for xcode.

    I bought my $29 Snow Leopard DVD (10.6.3) from the Apple Store in late October. It was not an upgrade, but the full version and can be installed on a freshly formatted partition, or over Leopard, or over Tiger. It just doesn't have iLife and iWorks.

    The Snow Leopard install requires: 1) Intel-based Mac, 2) 1 GB Ram, 3) 5 GB drive space, 4) DVD drive.
