How to print debug text in Swift

Paul Hudson       @twostraws

You can write text to the Xcode debug console using the print() function in Swift, like this:

print("Hello, world!")

The print() function is actually variadic, so you can pass it more than one parameter and it will print them all, like this:

print(1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

Available from iOS 7.0
