Swift Question

Is there a way to have a Swift script use multiple files

I am trying to write a script with Swift (not an Xcode project). To be clear, the first line of my file is

#!/usr/bin/swift


And I am just calling it from the command-line.

However, I can't figure out how to have that script use code that is in another .swift file. It doesn't pick it up from the same directory and there is no way to
import
that I can see.

Is this supported?

Answer

My current solution is a simple shell script that concatenates all the files into one and executes the concatenated file:

TMPFILE=`mktemp /tmp/Project.swift.XXXXXX` || exit 1
trap "rm -f $TMPFILE" EXIT 
cat *.swift > $TMPFILE
swift $TMPFILE
