If I've surmised correctly from other messages on this thread, you should
be able to `import Glibc` and then you can use most of what's in the C
standard library (since Swift interoperates directly with C). The module
map which enables you to import Glibc is:

OO wrappers around things like I/O are provided by the open source version
of Foundation: https://github.com/apple/swift-corelibs-foundation  and, to
the extent that their functionality matches the proprietary macOS version,
there's documentation at https://developer.apple.com/reference/foundation/
