And lo, the developers at Apple discovered blocks. There was much rejoicing :)

For the record, the first paragraph ends with: "Blocks, which are sometimes called closures, are not new to programming; in fact, they were already supported in one of the parent languages of Objective-C: Smalltalk. More recently, languages like Ruby and Java have embraced blocks."

@James Foster, you didn't expect James to actually read past the header, did you? ;)
For the record, Objective-C is pretty cool and I would not mind working in it professionally. It implements the whole idea of "sending messages to objects" better than C# or VB.NET, or even Java from what I recall of it.
