> I am trying to do something super simple using Swift - we are changing our infrastructure and the new environment requires me to work with Swift. Needless to say, I am a complete newbie and a bit lost on where to go first / start.
> The scenario is this: we take a backup of our db every night and then need to move that backup to an offsite server for redundancy. So it’s a get get file, cp file, save file idea. Nothing more. 
> Any thoughts on how to go about this or where to start looking for resources?

If you're looking at opening files and/or running external commands, you're going to need to use the C library (Darwin on Mac, Glibc on Linux) or, if you're on the Mac, Foundation. Which are you looking at here?
