    NSString *puppet = @"Pinocchio";

    Create a string called 'puppet' that has the value 'Pinocchio' using message syntax

    NSString *puppet = [[NSString alloc] initWithString:@"Pinocchio"];

    Given: NSString *puppet = @"Pinocchio"; Write a line of code that stores the number of letters in 'puppet' in a variable called 'len'. Use message notation.

    unsigned long len = [puppet length]; (using 'int' for the data type here creates a warning)

    Given: NSString *school = @"TCA"; NSLog(@"I attend %@", school); The fragment '@"I attend %@"' is called a _____ ____ and the fragment '%@' is called a _____ or _____ _______

    format string...token...format specification

    Given: NSString fname = @"John"; NSString lname = @"Doe"; Write a command(s) that creates a new NSString called 'fullName' that concatenates fName and lName.

    NSString *fullName = [fname stringByAppendingString: @" "]; fullName = [fullName stringByAppendingString: lname];

    In an NSLog statement, the token for an unsigned long is....


    Given: unsigned long len = [@"Hello World" length]; What is an acceptable replacement datatype for 'unsigned long'


    Correct the error: NSString temp = [[NSString alloc] init];

    NSString *temp = [[NSString alloc] init];

    Given: bool status = [TCAStringManip isUpperCaseLetter:t]; Write a statement that logs 'YES' if status is true and 'NO' if status is false using the ternary operator
