A graphical, object oriented programming environment

Provides an object oriented application development framework and tool set for use on a wide variety of platforms. It provides a generalized visual interface design and a cohesive user interface. It also uses a common imaging model called Display PostScript (based on PostScript) to do all its drawing, so the program is truly WYSIWYG. GNUstep is written in the Objective-C language, a simple yet powerful object-oriented language based on C that gives you the full power of an object-oriented language with exactly one syntax addition to C and a dozen or so additional keywords.
