The Objective-C 2.0 Programming Language

Objective-C is a small but powerful set of extensions to the standard ANSI C language. Objective-C is designed to give C full object-oriented programming capabilities in a straightforward way. This document is about the first component of the development environment — the programming language. It fully describes the Objective-C language, and provides a foundation for learning about the second component, the Mac OS X Objective-C application frameworks—collectively known as Cocoa.
