Objective-C is a reflective, object-oriented programming language that adds Smalltalk-style messaging to the C programming language.
Today, it is used primarily on Apple's Mac OS X and iOS: two environments derived from the OpenStep standard, though not compliant with it. Objective-C is the primary language used for Apple's Cocoa API, and it was originally the main language on NeXT's NeXTSTEP operating system. Generic Objective-C programs that do not use these libraries can also be compiled for any system supported by gcc or Clang.
Objective-C was created primarily by Brad Cox and Tom Love in the early 1980s at their company Stepstone. Both had been introduced to Smalltalk while at ITT Corporation's Programming Technology Center in 1981. The earliest work on Objective-C traces back to around that time. Cox was intrigued by problems of true reusability in software design and programming. He realized that a language like Smalltalk would be invaluable in building development environments for system developers at ITT. However, he and Tom Love also recognized that backward compatibility with C was critically important in ITT's telecom engineering milieu. Cox began writing a pre-processor for C to add some of the capabilities of Smalltalk. He soon had a working implementation of an object-oriented extension to the C language, which he called "OOPC" for Object-Oriented Pre-Compiler. Love was hired by Schlumberger Research in 1982 and had the opportunity to acquire the first commercial copy of Smalltalk-80, which further influenced the development of their brainchild.
In order to demonstrate that real progress could be made, Cox showed that making interchangeable software components really needed only a few practical changes to existing tools. Specifically, they needed to support objects in a flexible manner, come supplied with a usable set of libraries, and allow for the code (and any resources needed by the code) to be bundled into a single cross-platform format.
Love and Cox eventually formed a new venture, Productivity Products International (PPI), to commercialize their product, which coupled an Objective-C compiler with class libraries. In 1986, Cox published the main description of Objective-C in its original form in the book Object-Oriented Programming, An Evolutionary Approach. Although he was careful to point out that there is more to the problem of reusability than just the language, Objective-C often found itself compared feature for feature with other languages.
Added iOS 13 support.

This app is really good but I have 1 question ... How do you enable C99 Mode ? Also you should let us pick which extension *.m (Objective-C) and *.mm (Objective-C++ a combination of C++ and Objective-C) . That would help because I am familiar with cout and cin but those can't be used in Objective-C but they can in Objective-C++.
The objective c app has many bugs and most of all should have instructions in how to use it. Copy and paste doesn't.t always work. Compiling the program seems to have bugs. Because at first it will run and then no longer seems to be able to compile but only many errors occur and to resolve doesn't seem to work where it should especially a simple input of computation or print statement. It needs a lot of work still but the idea for beginners is not bad. I would not recommend this program for anyone until they fix the bugs.
Developer Response ,
A lot of issues were fixed already and copy&paste functions are supported now.
Obj C compiler
Like it a lot need more options though. Don't get any results after build and test. Just says compiled successfully?? Am I missing something? Great app when more options added. Being new thought it would be to test while on brake at work. Please add more options. New, save, foundation. Gladly pay more. Thanks.
