From now on with each new version of Swift that comes out I'm going to take some time a dig through all the Swift Evolution Proposals that made it into that release. Some real gems made it into the last few releases that I didn't know anything about but are really cool. The one I'm … Continue reading Swift Property Wrappers
So, for my 6502/6510 emulator project I've been trying to figure out the best (read that, "fastest") way to get the time with nanosecond resolution. I need this because the North American version of the Commodore 64 ran at 1.02MHz (1,022,727Hz) and so that means the clock "ticks" every 977.8 nanoseconds. And that's just for … Continue reading Fastest Way To Get The Time

Over the weekend I managed to get a build of Swift working on the Odroid C2 SBC. As soon as I get a chance I'll TAR up the build and put it up on Dropbox. The build for the Raspberry Pi is still compiling. Here's the little sample program I wrote to test it out. … Continue reading Swift on an Odroid C2
I am really going to have to start playing around with the SwiftSyntax library! It looks like I'd be able to write some real code timesavers with it.
I've been having a tough time in Swift with the Struct vs. Class issue. Unlike Java and Objective-C, Swift allows value type "classes" known as Struct types. These behave very similar to C++ objects that are created without dynamic memory allocation - in other words they're created on the stack instead of the heap. This … Continue reading Swift Struct vs. Class
In my previous post I talked about Swift's handling of strings and the problems making the characters of a string randomly accessible because of Swift Strings being Unicode compliant. Another part of the issue, and the reason that we can think of Characters in Swift as just Strings in and of themselves, is the concept … Continue reading What in the Hell is a Grapheme Cluster?
