Hi Everyone,

I hope this is the best place to discuss this — if not, please point me in
the right direction! It seems like an appropriate topic for evolution

According to my limited knowledge and basic research, Swift doesn't
currently have a simple way to read from standard input from the console.
The best solution I found was this StackOverflow solution
but it doesn't seem to be implemented on Linux yet, and I think it should
be simpler than having to use NSFileHandle if Swift is to be used as a true
systems programming language.

Of course, if there is an easier way to do this, please let me know! Or a
reason why the SO solution is the best way to do this. Thanks for reading,
would love to hear thoughts on this. I also just joined the list, so if
this has already been discussed, apologies.
