print() behavior difference, working as designed.


(Dru Satori) #1

While working on making some adjustments to code that has been developed for OSX/iOS that would allow it to be portable to Linux, we are seeing a behavior that is causing some confusion. I’m not sure it is a bug, it may well be working as designed.

At issue the following code: (where value is an UnsafeMutablePointer<void> containing a pointer to a MacOSRomanStringEncoding of the string ‘hello’)

let data : NSData = NSData.init(bytes:value, length:len)
    let s : String = String.init(data:data,
      encoding:NSMacOSRomanStringEncoding)!
    print("Value: \(s)")

On OSX, this results in a print of:


(@lbutlr) #2

Are the NS classes ported to Linux?

This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

(Dru Satori) #3

Some of the Foundation classes. NSData is tagged as ‘mostly implemented’
