Documentation about the overall architecture and functions of the source code -- where is it?


(Shyamal Chandra) #1

Hi,

As a newbie to the source code of Swift, where is the overall white
paper and function documentation for Swift source code?

Where are the different files in the pipeline?

Thanks!

Best,

This talk from a few months ago includes a very high-level overview of the pipeline, though certainly not to the file level: <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ntj8ab-5cvE>

Other than that, this kind of basic documentation seems to mainly exist in the heads of the Apple folks on the swift-dev list. Unfortunately, most of them are on Christmas break right now.
