I think if you can grok Java, you can handle Objective C.  The object
systems are the same.  Further, the same restrictions w.r.t. the types
int and char apply.  The only real gotcha is that Objective C's syntax
is a touch bizarre... 

[anObject elementsPerform:aMethod];

ie, it looks more like smalltalk.
