Overview[edit]

The following examples demonstrate data types, arithmetic operations, and input in Swift.

Data Types[edit]

// This program demonstrates variables, literal constants, and data types.

var i: Int
var d: Double
var s: String
var b: Bool

i = 1234567890
d = 1.23456789012345
s = "string"
b = true

print("Integer i =", i)
print("Double d =", d)
print("String s =", s)
print("Boolean b =", b)

Output[edit]

Integer i = 1234567890
Double d = 1.23456789012345
String s = string
Boolean b = true

Discussion[edit]

Each code element represents:

  • // begins a comment
  • var i: Int defines an integer variable named i
  • var d: Double defines a double floating-point variable named d
  • var s: String defines a string variable named s
  • var b: Bool defines a Boolean variable named b
  • i = , d = , s =, b = assign literal values to the corresponding variables
  • print() calls the print function

Arithmetic[edit]

// This program demonstrates arithmetic operations.

var a: Int
var b: Int

a = 3
b = 2

print("a =", a)
print("b =", b)
print("a + b =", (a + b))
print("a - b =", (a - b))
print("a * b =", a * b)
print("a / b =", a / b)
print("a % b =", (a % b))

Output[edit]

a = 3
b = 2
a + b = 5
a - b = 1
a * b = 6
a / b = 1
a % b = 1

Discussion[edit]

Each new code element represents:

  • +, -, *, /, and % represent addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and modulus, respectively.

Temperature[edit]

// This program converts a Fahrenheit temperature to Celsius.

var fahrenheit: Double
var celsius: Double

print("Enter Fahrenheit temperature:")
fahrenheit = Double(readLine()!)!

celsius = (fahrenheit - 32) * 5 / 9

print(String(fahrenheit) + "° Fahrenheit is " + String(celsius) + "° Celsius")

Output[edit]

Enter Fahrenheit temperature:
 100
100.0° Fahrenheit is 37.7777777777778° Celsius

Discussion[edit]

Each new code element represents:

  • readline()! reads the next line from standard input
  • Double()! converts the input to a double floating-point value
  • String() converts the output numeric value to a string
