The code you read there was C++, not C. C is very similar to C++, the main difference in that C does not have classes. I don't know any Objective C so I can't comment, but C++ is fairly difficult. The syntax is similar to PHP so that won't give you trouble, but things are overall harder. I initially learned form the book
C++ Programming Fundementals by Chuck Easttom
and learned from various other resources from both books and the internet after that.
Going specifically to iPhone apps, I have no idea. Mac programming is easier to do than Windows programming, but I have only ever programmed for Windows. You will have to learn your language and a graphics library, probably OpenGL.
Smacks head! Yes you're right...I think I read that C++ isn't true object-oriented but makes use of OO features? You also have to handle memory management yourself right?
Anyways, don't want to get too OT....
Must find my next PHP class project!
PS - the last book I read was "The Object-Oriented Thought Process" by Matt Weisfeld.
