Long time listener, first time poster. I've scanned through the last few
weeks of posts to swift-evolution and didn't come across anything that
appeared to address this, so I thought I would ask. If it has come up
please let me know!
I'm sure most are familiar with building Python applications using
__init__.py and organizing module code in subdirectories and then importing
the code. Likewise, you can use a flat structure and have everything in a
top-level namespace, importing class definitions with something along the
from Foo import Foo
from Bar import Bar
f = Foo()
b = Bar()
Once this is executed there are Foo.pyc and Bar.pyc files littered in your
Is there a plan for Swift to evolve into a language that can also perform
JIT compilation/execution, in the same manner that running a single swift
file (with no imports to local code) works today? Quite frankly I am
looking forward to a day when I no longer have to deal with languages that
define blocks through whitespace indentation.
