Throughout programming, we get into moments that variable will have no value assigned to it or it could contain a value. We call these variables Optionals in swift programming. Optional binding is a common practice of unwrapping nil values safely.
Let us discuss how the binding process works, by following steps.
Output: We are having coffee
Output: the optionals is nil
Sometimes we force unwrap optionals by using an exclamation mark at the end of the variable. In this case, if the optionals have nil value, then it will force the program to crash.
Which gives EXC_BAD_INSTRUCTION
To avoid these types of crashes, we use optional binding. To unwrap optionals, we can use the exclamation mark “!” or double question mark with a value, the variable will use this value when the optional is nil.
Output: Hello World
if -let statements :
Similarly, we can also use if let statements to unbind the optionals. We can use this to find out whether an optional contains a value. If so, make that value available as a temporary constant or variable.
Output: This is Swift
Guard Statement :
Guard statements are simple and powerful. It checks for some conditions and if it evaluates to be false, then the else statement will execute which will exit the method. This is another way of writing if let statement.
When 1 is executed, output:
Location of John is unknown.
When 2 is executed, output:
Jane lives in Cupertino
