Start another program from Swift script

Well, for example in Python we can run another program from interpreter by

import subprocess
result = subprocess.run('ruby script.rb').stdout

My question is next:
Can we do something from Swift file at runtime or maybe from terminal via REPL

And can you send me resource when I can read about work with stdin, stdout in Swift, because is very small info in Documentation (Standard Library I/O)

These kinds of things live in Foundation, not the standard library:

import Foundation

let p = Process()
p.executableURL = URL(fileURLWithPath: "/bin/ps")
try p.run()

The Process class provides you with stdin/out/error handles for the process (https://developer.apple.com/documentation/foundation/process\).
FileHandle also provides these standard streams for the current process (https://developer.apple.com/documentation/foundation/filehandle\).

The “Shell Out” package’s source code shows some simple usage of Foundation’s Process: ShellOut/ShellOut.swift at master · JohnSundell/ShellOut · GitHub.

That package also handles stdout / stdin, but for more sophisticated uses of FileManager the “Files” package’s source has some nice simple usage: Files/Files.swift at master · JohnSundell/Files · GitHub
