I am trying to use dispatch_queue_create with a dynamic String that I am creating at runtime as the first parameter. The compiler complains because it expects a standard c string. If I switch this to a compile time defined string the error goes away. Can anyone tell me how to convert a String to a standard c string?
You can get a
CString as follows:
import Foundation var str = "Hello, World" var cstr = str.bridgeToObjectiveC().UTF8String
EDIT: Beta 5 Update -
bridgeToObjectiveC() no longer exists (thanks @Sam):
var cstr = (str as NSString).UTF8String
