Is there some means of detecting if an instance has been initialized?
I'm thinking not. Apple's "NSObject Class Reference" says "The init method defined in the NSObject class does no initialization", and googling around on the topic has not produced any means of doing so. I ask here in case someone has some knowledge I have not been able to find. Even a definitive "No" would help, as I could stop searching for an answer which doesn't exist.
The answer is no, but in order to comply with Cocoa's non-optional rule on this, if an instance exists, it's initialised. Otherwise you've made a grave error.
I was hoping to be able to write a unit test which would confirm that an
object had been properly initialized.
