[swift-users] Bls: Bls: module (de)-initialization

Sorry for not being clear. My english isn't very good either.
What I meant was static module linking (loading and unloading) for Swift modules. Also with initialization and deinitialization for Swift modules.
It's alright then. I just want to make sure. I'm a Pascal/Delphi programmer and sometimes I rely on such features in my applications. As a new and considered as modern programming language, I thought Swift would provide more advance features than Pascal/Delphi does.
Thank you.

Swift supports dynamic linking just fine; like I said, "dlopen" works.
