Objective-C has become the standard programming language for application development on the Mac OS X and iPhone platforms. A powerful yet simple object-oriented programming language that’s based on the C programming language, Objective-C is widely available not only on OS X but across many operating systems that support the gcc compiler, including Linux, Unix, and Windows systems.
The second edition of this book has been updated and expanded to cover Objective-C 2.0. It shows not only how to use the Foundation framework to develop portable, multi-platform programs, but also how to fully implement the iPhone SDK to develop programs designed specifically for the iPhone.
Programming in Objective-C 2.0 provides the new Objective-C programmer a complete, step-by-step introduction to the language. The book does not assume previous experience with either C or objected-oriented programming languages, and it includes many detailed, practical examples of how to put Objective-C to use in everyday programming needs.
