Programming in Objective-C (6th Edition)

Programming in Objective-C, 6th version
up to date for OS X 10. nine Mavericks, iOS 7, and Xcode five

Programming in Objective-C is a concise, rigorously written educational at the fundamentals of Objective-C and object-oriented programming for Apple's iOS and OS X structures.

The ebook makes no assumptions approximately earlier event with object-oriented programming languages or with the c program languageperiod (which Objective-C is predicated upon). due to this, either newbies and skilled programmers alike can use this e-book to quick and successfully research the basics of Objective-C. Readers may also research the strategies of object-oriented programming with no need to first research all the intricacies of the underlying c program languageperiod.

This special approach to studying, mixed with many small software examples and routines on the finish of every bankruptcy, makes Programming in Objective-C best for both lecture room use or self-study.

This version has been absolutely up-to-date to include new Objective-C positive aspects and applied sciences brought with Xcode five, iOS 7, and Mac OS X Mavericks.

“The top publication on any programming language that I’ve ever learn. in order to study Objective-C, purchase it. ”–Calvin Wolcott

“An very good source for a brand new programmer who desires to study Objective-C as their first programming language–a woefully underserved marketplace. ”–Pat Hughes

Sample text

The symbolic macro names can be used to refer to the same error codes on different UNIX platforms. h. h> Using symbolic macro references for error codes is important, since it allows your C programs to be portable to other UNIX platforms. Only a compile is required to reference the correct numeric value for these codes on a given platform. UNIX errno codes are non-zero values and usually start at 1 and work up. Zero is sometimes used to indicate "no error" (this convention is used in rare cases with the functions strtol(3), strtoul(3), and strtod(3), for example).

A failure during close Some programmers are surprised to realize that fclose(3) can fail in the example provided. This can happen because the data written by fwrite(3) is still contained in a buffer provided by the stream fptr. When fclose(3) is finally called, it is first necessary to force the unwritten data in the buffer out to disk before closing the underlying file descriptor. If the disk is full, the fclose(3) call will fail and errno will report the error as code ENOSPC. Note that in this scenario, ferror(3) cannot be used to test for an error because the FILE stream is destroyed by the fclose(3) call.

Over time, several problems with this open concept emerged: • • • Program errors or accidental writes to a directory could cause the loss of several files. New file systems supported different directory structure entries. Long filename support made it inconvenient to work directly with directory entries. The first point illustrates one of the big weaknesses of early directory management. It was possible to lose the contents of an entire directory by accidentally overwriting the directory. The following command used to create havoc: $ echo OOPS >directory If directory was the name of a directory, this command would overwrite its contents, causing UNIX to lose track of all the files that it managed.
