Actually you don't know what you think you know. Cocoa is an application
framework, not a language. Objective-C is a language, and it is not a
subset of C++ (it is a superset of C).
The language is not the issue. It will take you one day to learn
Objective-C; it's a very easy language, and the object-oriented concepts
you learned working with REALbasic will help you. The issue is the
framework, Cocoa; it is very big and powerful. I like to say it takes
one day to learn Objective-C, one month to write your first real Cocoa
app, and one year to stop feeling like a total beginner.
The best way to start is to read Hillegass's book (now in its second
edition). That, along with the online doentation, is all you need. m.
PS On the other hand, REALbasic will feel a lot more comfortable to a VB
user, and it will let you compile for Windows and Linux as well as Mac.
