PSAuthor

A PSAuthor object is used to identify an author of a entry object. Use an author object to retrieve information about the author of an entry, and to associate the author with an Address Book person (ABPerson) object. Each author object can contain a name, an email address and a URL.

To determine the author of an entry, use the author property of an entry object. It returns an array of author objects. It is not recommended that you subclass PSAuthor.
