Is there a way to get some system information, such as CPU name and word size, using only Swift standard library and/or Foundation?
A lot of info like this is available using
sysctlbyname, a Darwin API that’s relatively easy to call from Swift. To get started, read its man page, then the
sysctl man page (in both sections 3 and 8).
For an example of how to call it from Swift, see this DevForums.
