Timestamp function that has been working reliably just caused EXC_BAD_INSTRUCTION

I have been using this function to generate a time stamp. I found it somewhere here on Stack Overflow.

@objc public class var timestamp: String {
return "\(Int(NSDate().timeIntervalSince1970 * 1000))"
}


It has been working without issue, but I just got a EXC_BAD_INSTRUCTION:

fatal error: floating point value cannot be converted to Int because it is greater than Int.max


As the development of this app is nearing completion it makes me nervous to all of the sudden see it cause a EXC_BAD_INSTRUCTION. This is running in the Simulator, but I have a valid date and time set.

Any ideas or suggestions or are greatly appreciated. Below is the backtrace.

Answer

Your code will crash on all 32-bit platforms (such as iPhone 4, 5) because the result of

NSDate().timeIntervalSince1970 * 1000
// E.g.: 1464850525047.38

does not fit into a 32-bit integer. As a solution, use 64-bit integers:

Int64(NSDate().timeIntervalSince1970 * 1000)

Alternatively, if the intention is to create a string representing the milliseconds, use string formatting instead of an integer conversion:

String(format:"%.0f", NSDate().timeIntervalSince1970 * 1000)
