I am an old geezer returning to programming after a 20 year gap..

I have worked through Kochan objective-C and having done that have been building an app for several weeks ok, but I have got stuck now.

i am building a command line app, i now want to a call to NSimage (not that I want to display anything just want to resize a jpeg in a file).

but i get an error in the linker complaining that NSimage symbol not found.

I have spent all evening on this without luck.

Any help gratefully received -

Tim (sorry to be an ignorant newbie .......just as I was in the 1970s)

When compiling from the command line, add "-framework AppKit" to link with AppKit (including NSImage).

Gave me the clue I needed

Thanks very much,

I was actually using Xcode (how wonderful is that compared to seperate edit compile link phases) but taking your clue I added App.kit as an external framework in Xcode and it did the trick - thank you very very much - from this cold Scottish hillside!
