    Even though many functions are declared in <NSPathUtilities.h> it does not appear to be it's own class. ( If NSPathUtilities is searched for in the documentation, there is no class by this name).
    What exactly is it, and where are all the common methods/functions for this header?
    thanks in advance.

    ps...slightly OT...but, is there a problem with the OBJ-C mailing list at Apple. It seems to have been down for a few days...or it may just be me.

    Thanks again.

    Those are categories. They add methods to other classes, in this case NSArray and NSString.

    Thanks Catfish_Man...I "kind of" thought so. Let me ask this then....a really basic question.
    Where in the documentation can you see that this is so?

    thanks again for clearing this up.

    I doubt it's documented that it's a category, as it doesn't really matter... the methods it declares are in the NSArray and NSString documentation.
