[Discussion] Dynamic code loading


(David Scrève) #1

I’m not sure this can be considered as an evolution, but there is a major feature that we might need someday if we want to write Swift as we write C or C++.

Actually, Swift is unable to dynamically load code from dlopen or LoadLibrary (Win API). There does not seems to exists any standard for exporting symbols
from module in system module.

Is there any plan for Swift 3.0 or is it out of scope and planned for futur release ? or not planned anyway ?
