Documentation WTF Moments

| Comments

I’m banging out a little application on Mac OS X in Obj-C/Cocoa currently. With any luck, I will have this done in the near future, and I’ll sell a few copies per month. I tend not to have to use the documentation for NSImage that often; iRooster doesn’t do too much with these objects. The app I’m working on right now does have to a little bit. In any case, I just had a serious what-the-fuck moment with the Cocoa docs.

The preferred way to name an image is to ask for a name without the extension, but to include the extension for a filename.

huh? You’re welcome to share in my experience by checking out the documentation for NSImage on Apple’s website.
