thanks.
GNUStep is a clone of the NEXTStep platform that was bought by Apple and
no longer exists separated from Mac OS X.
Be careful that there are no RAD IDEs for NEXTStep, so no form designer,
integrated debbuger and everything else.
Also GNUStep is written on Objective-C, so your software will also have
to be written on Objective-C. Objective-C is very different from C++ or
Object Pascal. The whole language paradigm is different.
Personally I suggest that you try Lazarus, a complete RAD IDE for Free
Pascal. There you can have all the development speed advantage of using
a IDE similar to Delphi.
You can also use it to recompile VCL project.
Here is the website: www.lazarus.freepascal.org/
Here is a popular software that uses it being run by the IDE:
sourceforge.net/project/screenshots.php
