    Learning C for OSX, tutorial suggestions please

    Hi all,

    I wish to learn how to program Cocoa for OSX, which is based on the Objective C language, and although I have a firm rooting in Pascal under the Delphi environment in Windows, I found that jumping straight into doing Cocoa stuff did my nut in!

    So I had to swallow humble pie and acknowledge it would take a bit longer, and that I actually had to learn some C.

    I have done the beginners tutorials here -
    http://www.loirak.com/prog/ctutor.html#first

    so that should give you all a good idea of where I am (don't laugh!).

    Do any of you have suggestions on where to head next online for tutorials? (Plain C only please, C++ is going to be more hard than help for my goal).

    Suggestions will be gratefully received!

    -Nexum

    PS
    Can anyone give me a simple example of why pointers are so useful in C? In Delphi I don't recall ever having to use something similar, and I don't really think I've missed out because of it... but I'm a student so could be wrong...
