<p>Hey all,
<br>I'm looking for a decent resource on programming in Objective C for C/C++ programmers. Can anyone point me to a decent on-line resource?
<p>Note: I do have the OS X Dev Tools CD, for what it's worth.
<p>Cheers..

not nearly as long as some; since last October, or whenever it was Apple first posted the dev tools for download. I used realbasic & codewarrior before that, and mpw and/or think c/pascal & hypercard before *that*

i did just get a pretty nifty NeXTSTeP 3.3 cd collection off ebay. perhaps it'll install on this pc i'm building (it just needs ram)

Remember to check out the hardware compatibility guide for NEXTSTEP 3.3 ( http://karchive.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=70039 ). Also download the patches (if you didn't get the Y2K patch CD with your set), they let you run NS on newer equipment. A good example would be trying to run it in VirtualPC. Without the patch you are only able to run with the display in default mode (640x480, 8-bit gray), but with the patch you can go up to 1024x768 in thousands of colors.

You should also check out Peanuts ( http://www.peanuts.org/ ), Peak ( ftp://next-ftp.peak.org/pub/next/ , and specially ftp://next-ftp.peak.org/pub/next/apps/LighthouseDesign/ ), and Omni ( ftp://ftp.omnigroup.com/pub/software/NEXTSTEP/ ) for apps, I think you'll be amazed at the selection of free stuff you'll find!:D
