Sample text

Do you need to know which instructions are grouped together in the print function in order to use it? No, you don’t! This is one of the nice things about grouping instructions in functions. You (or other programmers) can use the function without knowing how it works. By smartly grouping instructions in functions, it’s possible to write reusable program pieces that can be used in many different contexts. The print function is a good example of this. It can be used for various applications, and you don’t need to know how the function works in order to use it.

By default, Xcode has templates for iOS projects (applications that run on iPhones or iPads), watchOS projects (applications that run on the Watch) and OS X projects (applications that run on Macs). Let’s start by creating a simple OS X console application. In order to do this, click the Application item under OS X, and select the Command Line Tool project template (see Figure 1-2). Figure 1-2.
