Fwd: Cocoa frameworks/class diagrams or posters

  • My earlier searches same subject turned this up as a solution. While
    that will work, what this oldster really needs is a diagram that is
    printed that I can put on the wall.

    Were I to open all the frameworks and get an electron based diagram,
    I'd probably end up with more than I can print on one sheet for some
    frameworks...

    Perhaps an electronic version is the best way...

    Thanks.

      There is also an application called "AutoGraf" by Da Woon Jung.

  • It's not a real answer to your question, just a reassurance: after a while
    you'll realize that the Cocoa class tree is much shallower and less complex
    than MFC, and then you'll be close to the zen of Cocoa--hint: it has a lot
    to do with delegates and with dynamic dispatch...

  • I see what you mean looking at the class diagrams. Mostly shallow
    indeed. I do love the dynamic runtime actions. Mostly I guess I'll
    have to explore the richness of delegate functions as I find need for
    specific functionality!

    My best bet on manuals might be to get Kinkos to print double sided
    the PDF's that seem to offer the most value to me.
