O'Reilly did publish "Building Cocoa Applications" that starts with Objective C basics (assumes C knowledge.) The book starts off with creating an Objective C program in a plain text editor, compiling on the command line, etc. (Just like you would when programming in C itself)

The book then Introduces Interface Builder, etc. It might not be exactly what you're looking for, but it might come close.

    No, it's not what I'm looking for. As I say, if it were up to me you could skip the Interface Builder part completely (except for (perhaps) a -very- brief introduction in an appendix).

    Also, what I want is a book that does _not_ assume knowledge of C. Most fresh programmers today know something like Basic or Java, or some sort of scripting language, but not C. So this should be a Programming C and Objective C book, with focus on makin small command line applications.

    All the other stuff comes in the other books.
