IDE damaged? Red lines and thousands of lines of gibberish

#1

My IDE for my Harvard CS50 course is apparently damaged. There are thousands of lines of meaningless text with redlines running through them. I cannot view any of my work or make any programs.

Any idea of how to fix this, so I can get back to class? What could have caused this?

Solution:
It appears as though I’ve opened the compiled binary editor rather than the source code.

Double-click the FILENAME.c file on the left, not the program file.
