I am taking a course on swift. Whenever I try to use the println function in playground this message appears.

Playground execution failed: /var/folders/1x/400wqsqd0xd49yq1bssh9xxh0000gn/T/./lldb/4622/playground45.swift:6:1: error: 'println' has been renamed to 'print' println("Hi") ^~~~~~~ print Swift.println:2:13: note: 'println' has been explicitly marked unavailable here public func println<T>(value: T)

Yes, the println statement has been removed I believe as when you print something normally


in the results window/pane area it has a /n next to it, indicating that in the new Xcode or Swift version they've made it easier.

Thank you. Your answer is very kind

welcome ;)


As the message you received pointed out the 'println' function was renamed to just 'print'. There was quite a lot of things that changed with version 2 of Swift and I would recommend that you work on the iOS Development with Swift 2.0 Track as it takes into account all the updates made to Swift since version 2 released.

I hope I managed to help you out! If you have any more questions then don't hesitate to ask them.


Thank you! Will switch courses.
