Very neat look at the guts of ObjC. I wish there were more articles like this poking around at its innards, it’s an interesting language that doesn’t seem to get enough credit for its power.
Mike Ash has written quite a lot on Objective-C internals in his Friday Q & A blog series. He doesn’t post much anymore unfortunately, but there’s still lots of good reading in the archives.
It really is. I don’t know why people write C++ when they could be writing Objective-C or Rust. I guess they’re moving to Rust now, which is good. Actually, I do know why they write C++, because I used to write it for years myself: ignorance.
Or the fact it’s more portable? Or the large community around it?
C++, portable? Hah!
The community around C++ seems to be dying to me, and I’m quite grateful for that. No need to stay attached to such a mistake, better to learn from it and move on.
This is pretty vitriolic. The C++ community seems to be growing larger.
Call me when Rust supports more than typical amd64 targets in anything more than anger.
Not sure what you mean by a programming language supporting anger, but if it did I’m pretty sure C++ would steal 1st place.
This article is from 2017, it was the first link I noticed when I searched “rust arm”. If it worked back then, I’m pretty sure it works even better now.
