I took some of the OO ideas from JTrek, but it's all objective-C.  
note the [ ] indicating object access, it's typical for Obj-C,
java would be  String message = new String; and C something like char  
*message = (char*) malloc (??);

It's all the same, just in a different language with pro's and con's
