Title: Programming in Objective-C

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.
