So in a very strange twist of events I am finding myself completely out of my comfort zone writing Objective C code.
I have an earlier blog post about Objective C and some of the exceptions you get. There is another scenario that happens when things just don't happen. Without a doubt I am a novice at Objective C and I'm not entirely certain how you would classify it. It is a odd mix of a scripting language and C. Because of that hybrid I often find myself troubleshooting errors that don't make much of any sense to me. No doubt my lack of experience.
For instance there is a magic object in objc called "id" apparently there are a lot of rules around this object (that I'm just learning) you can do something like this:
NSLog (@" this is it's vaule %@", magicId);
but not this:
I'm sure there is a very sound reason and I can pretty much assume what it is at this point but stuff like that brings into light that Objective C is a blend of two types of languages. And makes me miss my comfort zone...
Now, where is that manual?
