The trick here is to replace the above line with:

    print(String(validatingUTF8: buf))

`fgets` sets up `buf` to hold a C string, so you have to convert it to a
Swift string. How do you do this depends on the encoding of the bytes. If
you expect the C string to be UTF-8, then `String(validatingUTF8:)` is the
way to go.

IMPORTANT: This conversion can fail, which is why the above will print a
bunch of optional strings, and you will have to decide what to your program
should do when it does.

btw This question came up recently. See the thread for other suggestions
about how to handle it.
