I found out about SE because of a very simple coding issue, that seemed odd.
I found myself needing to convert a string representing a boolean to a Bool. It seemed straight-forward enough, and yet myBoolString.boolValue and Bool(myBoolString) were not available, and by searching on SO, I found that I needed to convert via NSString,
let myBool = (self as NSString).boolValue
This seemed rather odd to me, and I'm wondering why such a basic conversion isn't possible in Swift directly.
Any insights appreciated. Thanks.
