This probably isn't iPhone specific but that's the platform I'm
currently working on so I just thought I'd make that clear.
I've recently read the Memory Management Guide and am a little
confused with my current situation. I have a RootViewController which
is responsible for several other UIViewControler objects. Each child
UIViewController holds a reference to the parent RootViewController. I
currently have this all set up using outlets. So each child
UIViewController's parent outlet is connected to the
RootViewController. I'm confused on how I should manage the retention
and release of the RootViewController. I initially manage the
RootViewController in the AppDelegate which releases the
RootViewController on dealloc. If this is the case then I shouldn't
have to worry about releasing the RootViewController parent outlet in
the child UIViewController's, correct? Retention is still a little
nebulous to me, but I should also retain rather than assign when
creating the parent property since retain is declaring ownership
(still confuses me) rather than creating a copy (that's what the copy
keyword is for), correct?
