Parameters

Example

import Swift

// create empty sets
let intSet = Set<Int>()
let stringSet = Set<String>()
let boolSet = Set<Bool>()
let floatSet = Set<Float>()

// create a set that is not empty
let evenNumbers: Set<Int> = [2, 4, 6, 8, 10]

// print sets
print(intSet)
print(stringSet)
print(boolSet)
print(floatSet)
print(evenNumbers)

// check if they are empty
print(intSet.isEmpty)
print(stringSet.isEmpty)
print(boolSet.isEmpty)
print(floatSet.isEmpty)
print(evenNumbers.isEmpty)
