Hi all,

I'd like to read keyboard input from playground console. Swift doc gives me
readLine function. I tried it on Playground but it didn't accept any input
I entered from the keyboard. Screenshot attached.

The code:
// — start code —
var name: String
print("What's your name? ", terminator: "")
name = readLine(stripNewline: true)!
print("Hello, \(name)... good to see you!")
// — end code —

Tried it on:
- Macbook Pro with OS X El Capitan
- XCode 7 with Swift 2

Any help please? Thank you.
