I want learn to make wrappers, but I don't have experience on this. So I
have some questions (maybe stupid questions):

1) Is possible make wrappers using StepTalk?

wrappers I see this needs the header "objc-api.h" which is no longer
available on gcc, so I should use libobjc/libobjc2. Is possible do this
using the headers of the "modern runtime"? Or "objc-api.h" is really

The only usage of the term that comes to mind is a wrapper for launching 
non-gnustep programs as if they were apps (eg using the openapp tool or from 
You don’t need a special programming language to do that … normally it’s just a 
directory containing a text file (Info-gnustep.plist), a tiny shell script, and 
perhaps some images.
You coulds look at the documentation in gnustep-gui, but it’s probably 
quicker/simpler to look at / copy the examples in gnustep svn at 

I think German is more looking like into a bridge into another (scripting-) language as wrapping that into objective-c calls? I have no experience with that, but once wrote a wrapper for libpcap, that can be found in the gnustep-non-fsf SVN repo.
At least there, I had no need to include low level objc headers to do that.
