Objective C 2.0 on a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.10 Server

  • Also works on Ubuntu 13.10 Desktop.
  • Instructions for installing GUI and the (Cairo) backend have been appended.

You can compile the following code with:

clang `gnustep-config --objc-flags` `gnustep-config --objc-libs` -fobj-arc -fobjc-runtime=gnustep -fblocks  -lobjc  blocktest.m 

clang `gnustep-config --objc-flags` `gnustep-config --objc-libs` -fobj-arc -fobjc-runtime=gnustep -fblocks  -lobjc -ldispatch -lgnustep-base  Fraction.m helloGCD_objc.m

Note that with newer releases of the compiler, -fobj-arc may not be recognized and is not required.
