okay, i think i'll go with clang.
the book by "brad cox" is interesting, but seems to be quite dated.
might as well work with the 2.0 stuff right away.

my goal is to understand object oriented technology pretty well.
realized that sooner or later, to understand 'oop' very well, i
would have to end up writing my own object framework.
will revert to working on gnustep post that.

thanks for the guidance. :)
