Initializer

init(stringInterpolation:)

Creates a new instance from an interpolated string literal.

Declaration

init(stringInterpolation: DefaultStringInterpolation)

Discussion

Do not call this initializer directly. It is used by the compiler when you create a string using string interpolation. Instead, use string interpolation to create a new string by including values, literals, variables, or expressions enclosed in parentheses, prefixed by a backslash (\()).

let price = 2
let number = 3
let message = """
              If one cookie costs \(price) dollars, \
              \(number) cookies cost \(price * number) dollars.
              """
print(message)
// Prints "If one cookie costs 2 dollars, 3 cookies cost 6 dollars."
