    I am new to C, and I have some questions.
    1.Do the SDK headers work on both C and ObjC or only in ObjC?
    2.I would like to develop apps for my iPod. Should I learn ObjC or C?
    3.Can you recommend a good ObjC tutorial?

    Thank you!

    Or you could buy the book. I think its a little rude to ask someone you dont even know for help on something so complicated. If you need help with your code and are pming people to help maybe you should learn more.

    I didn't PM anyone. Anyway, If gojohnyboi wants to help, he can post ( And he is very helpful!). And I can't buy the book, I'm 13 and I can't buy anything through the web...

    Ok, i have both nervegas' book as well as erica sadun's new book. i deffinately recommend erica's book, as its updated for 2.0 and sdk development, and shows a lot of neat things to do.

    As for the language, the whole UIKit and Foundation frameworks (the juicy core of all your apps for iphone) is all in objective-c, but some things(like AudioToolbox) are C and c++. so yeah, learn objc and buy this book:

    it provides explanations as well as sample code for a TON of things, even coverflow style things, and gets into some pretty advanced code. i would at least recommend a good understanding of objective-c before starting
