I'm in the process of learning Objective-C. I come from a Perl
background. I've done mostly CGI and NLP stuff. I find Objective-C
attractive because a) it's not Java and b) it's dynamic, not to
mention I want to do Cocoa programming.
For my first application, I want to write a newsgroup reader. I
haven't found any I like for OS X, and I need to write something.
Anyway, I don't know much about sockets and networking, but I quite
obviously need some code to connect to and communicate with nntp
servers. What could is there that I should use? I've looked at the
OmniNetworking framework, but am a little lost in it by the lack of
documentation and my lack of knowledge.
I do have a nntp Perl module I can port/translate, but I don't know
how to do the socket stuff in Objective-C. Is there some place I
should be looking for Objective-C code like Perl's CPAN?
Thanks for your help/time,
