How to wrap a Struct into NSObject

Hm, try to look at the NSValue at

You can use it like

struct aStruct
    int a;
    int b;
typedef struct aStruct aStruct;

Then sort of “wrap” it to an NSValue object like:

aStruct struct; struct.a = 0; struct.b = 0;
NSValue *anObj = [NSValue value:&struct withObjCType:@encode(aStruct)];
NSArray *array = @[anObj];

To pull the struct out from NSValue use:

NSValue *anObj = [array firstObject];
aStruct struct;
[anObj getValue:&struct];

I guess later on, you can have a category from NSValue to make that better =D
