get input from playground


(Bee) #1

Hi all,

I'd like to read keyboard input from playground console. Swift doc gives me
readLine function. I tried it on Playground but it didn't accept any input
I entered from the keyboard. Screenshot attached.

The code:
// — start code —
var name: String
print("What's your name? ", terminator: "")
name = readLine(stripNewline: true)!
print("Hello, \(name)... good to see you!")
// — end code —

Tried it on:
- Macbook Pro with OS X El Capitan
- XCode 7 with Swift 2

Any help please? Thank you.

Hi Bee,

Swift.org downloadable toolchains don't work with Xcode Playgrounds; Playgrounds use the copy of Swift that ships with Xcode. Any questions you have about Playground usage are best asked at https://devforums.apple.com/community/tools/xcode/playgrounds.

Thanks,

  - Rick
