I would not include the first assertion above, "mainly used on systems running
NeXTSTEP". There are many projects out there that use Linux or other Unix
systems or even Windows for their development that use free software libraries
written in Objective-C. A better description would be:

<quote>
Objective C is an object-oriented derivative of the C language, much like C++
but with more dynamic capabilities than this. This package adds Objective-C
support to the GNU compiler. It includes the Objective-C compiler and runtime
that is needed for running Objective-C programs.

Install gcc-objc if you are going to do Objective C development and you
would like to use the gcc compiler.  You will also need to install the gcc
package.
