Barry,  you cant begin to know how helpful that is! Thank you so much! I really appreciate the level of detail and the helpful tips and info inside the code. I have just glanced over the files and it already makes 100% more sense to me. I cant wait to start learning and coding more.

Thanks again!

Matt

Matt,

I've attached the thee (!) files that translate your code as well as
an Xcode project to build and run them. I've made use of the
Objective-C 2.0 @property and @synthesized getters/setters. In this
case you could get away with using the instance variables directly
(though this is bad practice in ObjC because it exposes the
implementation and it's hard to convert to properties later, unlike
Python).

Cheers,
Barry
