Example text

Note When using an overflow operator, the first operand is referenced to determine legality of assignment before the operation is performed, instead of the result of the whole operation. Along similar lines, division by 0 or calculating modulo 0 in Objective-C will return 0. In Swift, either attempt will result in a compile-time error unless you use the equivalent overflow operator, in which case 0 will be returned just like in Objective-C. ) for use with optionals. This operator provides a shorthand syntax alternative to using a ternary conditional operator.

Subclass Not an instance of Subclass */ as? N/A for value in arrayOfClassInstances { if let item = value as? info 60 CHAPTER 4: Performing Operations Operator Precedence and Associativity Precedence rules apply when an expression contains two or more binary operators and parentheses are not used to group and explicitly specify the order in which operations should be performed. Associativity rules group these operations in a left-to-right or right-to-left fashion based on the operator type. A general best practice when dealing with a complex arithmetic expression is to always use parentheses; this not only helps to ensure intended precedence and associativity, but it also clearly conveys your intentions.

By adopting a protocol in Swift, a type is agreeing to implement the protocol’s requirements. Chapter 8 will cover protocols in full. countElements() should normally suffice when the need to get a String value’s length arises. Remember from the last chapter, however, that the Character type represents a sequence of extended grapheme clusters that are combined to produce a single human-readable character. countElements() counts Character values, not the individual clusters, which could be one or more per each Character value.
