How to find the scale from a CGAffineTransform

Swift version: 5.6

Paul Hudson    @twostraws   

If you have a CGAffineTransform and want to know what its scale component is – regardless of whether it has been rotated or translated – use this code:

func scale(from transform: CGAffineTransform) -> Double {
    return sqrt(Double(transform.a * transform.a + transform.c * transform.c))
}
