The Swift Parallel Scripting Language

Another programming language with same name Apple selected.

Swift Programming Language - Apple Developer

  • for index in 1...5 { println("\(index) times 5 is \(index * 5)")

  • "square brackets" or "box brackets" [ ]
  • braces or "curly brackets" { }
  • "angle brackets" < >
