Synthesized setter requires an uppercase 1st character?
«

Maybe I am really misunderstanding this but if seems if I synthesize the setter function for a property called 'a', I must set it by using 'setA:'
'seta:' won't work.
Why is it this way? It seems daft.
Experimenting I see that if the variable is called 'A', I can also use 'setA:'
So what happens if I have two variables called 'a' and 'A'?
It would be poor style to do so but surely not illegal?
How would I set 'a' in that case?
Thanks

That has to do with the "camelCase" naming convention that's followed by Apple and recommended for Objective-C programmers. See:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CamelCase
.
