I am attempting to sort through the contents of a .plist file in

me to return the instance that I am looking for. How would someone get a
certain key for each part of the tree?


If your key path is in the form of an array, use this from my NSDictionary helpers...

- (id)valueForKeyPathArray:(NSArray*)keyPathArray {
NSString* keyPath = [keyPathArray componentsJoinedByString:@"."] ;
return [self valueForKeyPath:keyPath] ;
