Instance Property

fileHandleForWriting

The receiver's write file handle.

Declaration

var fileHandleForWriting: FileHandle { get }

Discussion

This object is automatically deallocated when the receiver is deallocated.

You use the returned file handle to write to the pipe using NSFileHandle's write(_:) method. When you are finished writing data to this object, send it a closeFile() message to delete the descriptor. Deleting the descriptor causes the reading process to receive an end-of-data signal (an empty NSData object).
