I test you code in command line `swiftc main.swift` and in macOS Command
Line Tool app.

Here is the main.swift:

import Foundation


import Foundation


func input() -> String {

    let keyboard  = FileHandle.standardInput

    let inputData = keyboard.availableData

    let strData   = String(data: inputData, encoding: .utf8)

    return strData!

}


func write(_ txt: String) {

    print(txt, terminator: "")

}


func read() -> String {

    let c = CharacterSet.whitespacesAndNewlines

    return input().trimmingCharacters(in: c)

}


/* main program */


write("Enter your name: ")

let s = read()

print("You name is \(s)")


It turns out that the input request was ran before the `write("Enter your
name: ")`. I don't why. Maybe it is a bug?


Here is my output in terminal:


$ swiftc main.swift

$ ./main

abc

Enter your name: You name is abc

$


As you can see, the program asked me to input my name before it showed the
notification. In playground, the situation is alike.


However, if the code is running as a command line tool, created by Xcode ->
Create a new project -> macOS, command line tool, everything works fine.
