No such module Synchronization in Embedded Swift

I am trying to use new Synchronization module with Embedded Swift mode, but it seems to fail with:

"error: no such module 'Synchronization'"

I am compiling it with:

xcrun -toolchain "Swift Development Snapshot" swiftc basic.swift -Xfrontend -disable-availability-checking -enable-experimental-feature Embedded -wmo

Do I need to specify some other flag or there is some more fundamental reason why this is not working?

There's probably two issues here:

  1. we likely haven't added this module to the embedded standard library (yet)
  2. platform support for various synchronization primaries varies and we haven't figured out how to expose this complexity.

We have figured out how to expose this complexity! Availability of atomic primitives can be checked on the target platform via _hasAtomicBitWidth. This should just be a question of configuring the build to build the module for that environment, and setting the conditionals appropriately. CC @Alejandro.


I stand corrected, adding the synchronization module should be pretty easy then!

Given that we're not currently building the code for these environments, we might encounter some bugs once we do, but I expect that they will be pretty straightforward to resolve.


Right, I don't see why the Synchronization module should be problematic to enable in Embedded Swift. Took a stab at it here: [embedded] Start building Synchronization in embedded Swift mode by kubamracek · Pull Request #72293 · apple/swift · GitHub
