Procedural programming just isn't ideal for certain types of problems, and as a result object-oriented programming has become dominant in many areas of computing today. Objective-C is an example of an object-oriented language. In this "digital short" eBook, top OS X and iOS developer Robert Clair describes the fundamentals of object-oriented programming, illustrating how object-oriented concepts are implemented in Objective-C. He also lists the additions that Objective-C makes to the C language.
