Swift Set Type in Swift 1.2

via Swift Set Type in Swift 1.2 – Coding Explorer Blog.

In Objective-C there were three basic types of Data Structures, NSArray, NSDictionary, and NSSet.  In Objective-C, the immutable and mutable forms were separate, so you also had NSMutableArray, NSMutableDictionary, and NSMutableSet.  Especially since it is often an interview question, I should point out that a Data Structure is simply “a particular way of organizing data in a computer so that it can be used efficiently.”  You can read that sentence and more at the Wikipedia article about Data Structures.

In Swift we were greeted with Arrays and Dictionaries, but there was no Set to be found!  You had to go back to Objective-C’s NSSet to work with them.  You can read about the other two Data Structures back in the previous posts Arrays and their Methods in Swift and Swift Dictionary Quick Reference.  Well, thanks to Swift 1.2, Set has come to the land of Swift.
