I’m new to Mac, OS X and swift. I’ve done some work with Windows and C# a few years ago. OBTW, Cocoa Programming for OS X was very well done and useful. I’m not quite done with it yet, but it’s a great place to start.
I understand Xcode 6, the value of the IDE and all that, however, i’d like to write a program in swift using a context sensitive editor, compile it to an executable, and then run it from the command line. I’m not seeing anything online or in a couple books I’ve read on how to do that. I guess I can make due with a simple window app if that’s the best way to go. Is that what the command line Application project in Xcode 6 is all about? Any ideas?
Also, I’m not seeing much on simple binary or text file routines for creating, opening, writing, reading, … in swift. I see the NSStream class, but I need a little more help with it than whats available online. Anyone have a good resource? Thanks!
