a couple of days ago i ran into swift on linux. The whole thing makes so much sense for us. Developing our tools in swift could be a huge benefit. I am excited to get deeper into swift for linux.
I build swift on Ubuntu successfully (without errors) from scratch with this options:
./utils/build-script --release --foundation --verbose-build --build-stdlib-deployment-targets all -l -b -p --skip-test-linux --build-swift-static-stdlib --build-swift-static-sdk-overlay --xctest -c
My goal is to have Foundation in static compiled binaries.
As mentioned everything in the build process works fine, but the execution of a simple script as shown below failed.
I get the following error:
/bin/swiftc /home/hello.swift -o /home/hello
/home/hello.swift:1:8: error: no such module 'Foundation'
How to build Swift with the current state of foundation?
Can you please give me a little kick into the right direction? The web is not very useful in this early state, but i am really want to get into it.
Thanks a lot,
