So Swift Then ? Or Wot No Brackets ?

So Swift is essentially Objective-C without the C and without the bracket message sending syntax and with some new stuff and some changed stuff.

Well the C is no loss but the brackets are the best bit so what new stuff do we get to compensate for their disappearance ?

In no particular order

  • tuples

  • a first class enum type

  • a first class struct type

  • operator functions and custom operators

  • range operators

  • subscript operators

  • optional values

  • generics

  • a super switch

  • a plethora of options for parameter lists


    much much more

as it always says on the posters.
