I am extremely new to Cocoa Programming, so I do not yet have a full appreciation for memory management or the Garbage Collector available with Objective-C 2.0.
That said, I have been working my way through this book with Garbage Collection enabled, as I personally want to lower the barrier a bit (and I may never do iPhone development). All of the exercises up to the SimpleBrowserNotification exercise have worked flawlessly with GC enabled. However, the progress bar will not work unless I disable GC.
Can anyone let me know what I would need to do to make it work with GC enabled? Or can someone point me to the documentation that could help me?
On a brief aside, I feel that it might be helpful to make a note somewhere in the text that some of the code is not GC compatible. Another possibility would be to put a footnote on some pages that would give the GC compatible version of the code.
