Compiler Warnings: id and *id, multiple declarations
What syntax do I need so the XCode compiler accepts both id and id* types without giving me warnings? Although the compiler warnings don't turn into exceptions that stop my program in it's tracks or change my program logic, I heard it's good practice to remove all warnings and want to remove the warnings.
Since I'm on the topic of removing warnings, I can't seem to get rid of these kinds of warnings either.
I've only declared -(NSString *)set once:
[[sets objectAtIndex:i] omega:[[[sets objectAtIndex:i] set] length]-1]; warning: multiple declarations for method `set'
I never did declare -(int)length, so I don't know why it doesn't know what the heck is going on, since -(int)length is an NSString method.
[self possible:[self possible] * [[[sets objectAtIndex:i] set] length]]; warning: multiple declarations for method `length'

You can't. A method in an ObjC class cannot be overloaded like it can in C++. You can't do what you are trying to do.
Why do you want to be able to pass id* anyway? id is already a pointer (it's declared as void* or obj_class* anyway).

I don't know what overloading is, but what I did describe up there worked fine, just got warnings.
Why id*? For the same reason of NSArray method:
- (id)initWithObjects:(id *)objects count:(unsigned)count
I did figure out the first part of the question. I just made my id an id*.
But I still don't know why I'm getting those others warnings, I bet it's something really simple.

- (id)initWithObjectsid *)objects countunsigned)count
Although it's possible to do stuff yourself like the above in objective-C it's much more common to send a group of objects in an array or a dictionary (depending upon your needs). Something like
[myObject myMethodWithArray:[NSArray arrayWithObjects: one, two, three, nil]];
Although my example is obviously more verbose and slower when you only ever use immutable objects I think the method is much more flexible if it can take any old array not just a list of objects. You also get to use the NSArray methods to access the elements rather than messing about with pointer arithmetic.
