[swift-users] Using Swift Package Manager with C++

I’m having issues using C++ code with the Swift PM. Simple examples work fine as long as I don’t use anything in the C++ standard library, otherwise the programs don’t compile.

My guess is that the Swift PM internally uses clang (as opposed to clang++) to compile C++ code, and while clang can compile normal C++ code it can’t link against the C++ standard library. Is that it?

The second example on the link below shows working C++ code with Swift. If I try to add a simple call to std::cout, for instance, the program stops compiling.

Thanks for any help :)
