    DescriptionProgramming in Objective-C, Fifth Edition Updated for OS X Mountain Lion, iOS 6, and Xcode 4.5 Programming in Objective-C is a concise, carefully written tutorial on the basics of Objective-C and object-oriented programming for Apple's iOS and OS X platforms. The book makes no assumptions about prior experience with object-oriented programming languages or with the C language (which Objective-C is based upon). Because of this, both beginners and experienced programmers alike can use this book to quickly and effectively learn the fundamentals of Objective-C. Readers can also learn the concepts of object-oriented programming without having to first learn all of the intricacies of the underlying C programming language. This unique approach to learning, combined with many small program examples and exercises at the end of each chapter, makes Programming in Objective-C ideally suited for either classroom use or self-study. This edition has been fully updated to incorporate new features in Objective-C programming introduced with Xcode 4.4 (OS X Mountain Lion) and Xcode 4.5 (iOS 6.)

    Programming in Objective-C, Fifth Edition" "Updated for OS X Mountain Lion, iOS 6, and Xcode 4.5 Objective-C has become the standard programming language for application development on the iOS and OS X platforms. A powerful yet simple object-oriented programming language that's based on C, Objective-C is widely available not only on Apple platforms but across many operating systems, including Linux, Unix, and Windows. "Programming in Objective-C" provides the new programmer a complete, step-by-step introduction to the Objective-C language. The book does not assume previous experience with either C or object-oriented programming languages, and it includes many detailed, practical examples of how to put Objective-C to use in your everyday programming needs. The fifth edition of this book has been updated to cover the new features in Objective-C programming introduced with Xcode 4.4 (OS X Mountain Lion) and Xcode 4.5 (iOS 6). It also includes coverage of Automatic Reference Counting (ARC) and shows how to take advantage of the Foundation framework's rich built-in library of classes and provides an introduction to iOS programming.
