Instance MethodSwift

distance(to:)

Returns the distance from this value to the given value, expressed as a stride.

  • Required.

func distance(to other: Self) -> Self.Stride

Parameters

other

The value to calculate the distance to.

Returns

The distance from this value to other.

Overview

If this type’s Stride type conforms to BinaryInteger, then for two values x and y, and a distance n = x.distance(to: y), x.advanced(by: n) == y. Using this method with types that have a noninteger Stride may result in an approximation.
