Proposal: support multi-line string text when assign a string variable


(杨晖) #1

hi, everyone,

when I have a long text string to assign a string variable, including

break character, I can’t do it like this in playground:

var str = "abcd
            efg"

but in other languages(for example, PHP), we can do it:

$str = "asdf
                sdfasdf";
var_dump($str);

So can Swift support this feature in next version?

There already exists a long thread (around 100 messages) on how to propose
the best multi-line string literals for Swift.
Please check out "[swift-evolution] multi-line string literals
<https://lists.swift.org/pipermail/swift-evolution/Week-of-Mon-20151207/001565.html>
".
