Public and Private Components
Every component in a Sway Object is public:
- A belief that programming is not a adversarial exercise
- Simplifies the language (syntactically speaking)
However, it is possible, with a little bit of work, to make a component private. One method in Sway uses simple scoping rules (see the Class and Object Components page.
The other uses operator overloading.
