Comment on "Objective-C, Ruby and Python for Cocoa"
by Daniel Jalkut — Feb 20
I agree that my post betrayed my own view that Objective C and C are largely identical. I mean, the fact that ObjC is essentially implemented as a C-library runtime on top of C contributes to this attitude.

Side note: I think this might unintentionally give some the impression that C and Objective-C are similar, which is only true to the extent that milk and milk chocolate are similar.

I think this statement would be much truer if you compared milk and chocolate milk. That is, Objective C is C with something added to it. Not a complex product of which C is merely an ingredient.
