[swift-users] Need Help with C-to-Swift (finally)

The answer is yes. I even managed to get a couple you didn't list on my own:
let cairo = Cairo(format: CAIRO_FORMAT_ARGB32, width: 421, height: 410)cairo.scale(10.0, y: 10.0)cairo.moveTo(29.0, y: 14.7)cairo.lineTo(37.6, y: 13.0)cairo.moveTo(37.6, y: 13.0)cairo.lineTo(30.4, y: 22.2)cairo.moveTo(30.4, y: 22.2)cairo.lineTo(29.0, y: 14.7)cairo.setLineWidth(0.1)cairo.stroke()cairo.surfaceWriteToPNG("boobs.png")
Swift is both really neat and really frustrating when learning it.

Sorry, I just got back from class.
I’ll respond in line!

I read on 
cairographics.org about bindings awhile back. I think they want cairo, not surface, so we would have something like:

let cairo = Surface(format: CAIRO_FORMAT_ARGB32, width: 240, height: 80)
cairo.setFontFace("serif", weight: CAIRO_FONT_WEIGHT_BOLD)
cairo.setSourceRGB(0.0, g: 0.0, b: 1.0)
cairo.moveTo(x: 10, y: 50)
cairo.showText("Hello, World!")

Would this work the same as before without "surface" but instead "cairo”?

Absolutely! That’s just a variable name — it could be called ‘puppies’, though that’s not very readable.

I went and looked at it, and even now it looks like I want to take every function I've used in Cairo and translate it to Swift. Swift is such a...simple language compared to everything else. That being said, as a result of the specs, it is also much more
 verbose in terms of writing the code. Compared to other languages, it is written out instead of shoved onto a few lines. 

Is there a way to import modules into other modules? Because it looks like a weekend project that will eventually get posted by myself at http://github.com/Christoffen-Corporation.

I’d recommend having a look at the Swift package manager example again — https://github.com/apple/swift-package-manager/blob/master/Documentation/SystemModules.md
There’s an example of using those modules together.

I meant the code posted in the Gist link above. I don't know jack squat about qsort. I'm hoping that if I can reverse-engineer code already produced, I can apply it to other parts of Cairo.

I’ll go ahead and comment it, but I think it’s simplistic enough that it should be readable with a grasp of some Swift concepts. Perhaps it’s a good idea to look through The Swift Programming Language to figure out some of the constructs I used — they’re fairly basic constructs.
