Everyone starts out as a beginer once. It sounds like you have the
drive to get involved. Good.
For C++, I liked:
'Thinking in C++' by Bruce Eckel
I'm not up on Objective C but Apple has some great examples. There is
also some Cocoa programing books from Oreiley that you might want to
check out. Since the programming apps are now free from Apple
(download the developers disk if you haven't already or buy them if
you are on a slow connection), taking a stab at things is pretty easy
and low investment.
The other thing I would recomend is start reading the code. Abiword
has been built to be cross-platform since the begining so what you
will need to do is find out which classes have to be implemented in
your native environment (in this case cocoa so that the app will work).
I think Hub has doen some of the cocoa stuff already but I'm not sure
how much you need to add to even get a runable app. But you can never
start any sooner than you start so ...
Anyway, those are just my thoughts. Best of luck to you.
