(#nxtzlca) @prologic Yeah, with C++ (and Java) I was fortunate to stumble upon Bruce Eckel’s “Thinking in…” books. But at least people know C++ is way too large, and approach it accordingly. Objective C? Sure, it’s only a thin, elegant layer over C… until you get to its class framework, which is the whole point, and start pouring over reams of NSApplicationLayerFileSystemAbstraction and such.
