If anybody wants to learn Objective-C, then what are the prerequisites for it ?

Is it similar to C/C++ ?

Any link/pointer appreciated.

Actually Objective-C is older than Java. In fact, Java is influenced by Objective-C in some areas.

Most books go into the basic of C then ObjC then the framework. It would definitely help knowing C.
