playing with objective c lately. search for it on google. very fun stuff. it’s like c and smalltalk combined. anyway i’m finding that my perl code for work which is done with perl’s oo support ports quite nicely to objective c. i’d never really looked at it, which considering some of the langs i have looked at is surprising, but i’m quite impressed.
there’s apparently a speed hit as compared to c++, but i think the flexibility and more readable syntax is nicer. if anyone has experience with objective c (gnu compiler on linux) please drop me a line. particularly if they’re in ireland.
