A user recently reported a weird bug to me, and the internet hinted that I might be able to fix it by running
swift build with the
--disable-sandbox flag (something about how Homebrew uses its own sandbox, so we need to disable Swift's when running
swift build --help tells me this:
--disable-sandbox Disable using the sandbox when executing subprocesses
I'm a bit worried that disabling the sandbox might open the program up to security issues or something, so I wanted to know: what is the sandbox? What's it for? Are there any reasons not to disable it?
