Apple: Trust us, we've patented parts of Swift, and thus chunks of other programming languages, for your own good

Re: ignoring the fact of Prior Art ?

The first thing I thought when I read the first patent is I used something similar in the 1980s for writing software, we had a project that was DCL, COBOL and C and a TPU editor environment that would chain compile the project and open the source code with errors and the error log split screen.

The same with Visual Studio later on...
