  • What exactly are you trying to get to "run"? (You can't "run" Objective-C code, it needs to be compiled first.) – Mat Jul 30 '13 at 10:58
  • I'm presuming you ask because it's mostly connected to Mac programming but Mac OSX is itself Unix. It was created in the 1980s, long before Apple was around. – Rob Jul 30 '13 at 11:20

    @Rob "in the 1980s, long before Apple was around" Apple was founded in 1976 (and incorporated in 1977, according to Wikipedia). – a CVn Jul 30 '13 at 11:26

  • Apple didn't start using Objective-C until the 1990s when they merged with NeXT. – user26112 Jul 30 '13 at 12:59

Yes, you can find some compilers for Objective-C for UNIX. The only one I can think of for now is GCC.

Keep in mind you won't have access to the Cocoa API that is running on Apple products only. However, GNUStep is trying to implement something similar to Cocoa and is written, of course, in Objective-C.
