The syntax for inserting an element

Parameters

element: This is the element we want to insert into the set.

Return value

It returns a boolean value and also the element we want to insert. The boolean denotes if the insertion was successful.

Example

var evenNumbers : Set = [10, 2, 6, 8, 4]
var oddNumbers : Set = [11, 5, 7, 3, 9]
var first_names : Set = ["john", "jane", "henry", "mark"]

// insert some elements and store results
let ins1 = evenNumbers.insert(45)
let ins2 = oddNumbers.insert(13)
let ins3 = first_names.insert("Theodore")
let ins4 = first_names.insert("")

// print inserted results
print(ins1)
print(ins2)
print(ins3)
print(ins4)

// print sets 
print(evenNumbers)
print(oddNumbers)
print(first_names)
