Typos Ch. 2: "Frameworks are designed to abstract you from these kinds of of details so you can focus . . ."

3rd paragraph

As text appears: However, if you divide one integer value by another integer value, you'll always get a integer result... Should be: ...always get an integer result... (Picky, picky, picky.)

Note from the Author or Editor:
Yup, typo. Thanks!

Final paragraph

Missing an article. Here's the text: "When you call a function, you can capture the result in variable [sic] of the same type." Should likely read as follows: "When you call a function, you can capture the result in a variable of the same type."

Note from the Author or Editor:
That is a typo. Thanks.

Line reads "The -[NSViewController loadWindow] method...". Line should read "The -[NSViewController loadView] method..."

Note from the Author or Editor:
Yes, this should be "-[NSViewController loadView]". Thanks.
