Getting used to Objective-C Syntax
My previous experience with programming is mostly with languages similar to C in syntax. So when I started to learn Objective-C, while it is still a subset of C, it diverged in a much different fashion to its brethren. To give a little history lesson, Objective-C was began in the 1980s, as basically a combination of the languages “C” and “Smalltalk“. Other C-derived languages include C++ (obviously) and Java. Other Smalltalk-derived languages include Python and Ruby. Since I am not particularly versed in Python or Ruby though, the aspects borrowed from that side of Objective-C’s family tree are currently a bit of a mystery to me, hence my trying to pass on what I’ve learned about the syntax.
