I can’t use ARC on Chapter 2 for the RandomPossessions for a Command Line Tool because OSX Snow Leopard does not have the check-box on the “choose options for this project” screen.
However, I want to learn the ARC way of coding, and I notice that the iOS 5 projects all seem to have Automatic Reference Counting checkbox, so is there another template I can use to create this project which will do everything (or at least a close approximation of everything) that the book requires.
I don’t want to just skip it, because the book seems to require it later. I cannot upgrade to Lion because my mac mini is too old, and I would prefer not to use the old-style release/retain unless it’s absolutely necessary, since the book seems to deal exclusively with ARC.
Hope someone can help me.
