protocol CVarArgType

Instances of conforming types can be encoded, and appropriately passed, as elements of a C va_list.

This protocol is useful in presenting C "varargs" APIs natively in Swift. It only works for APIs that have a va_list variant, so for example, it isn't much use if all you have is:

int f(int n, ...)

Given a version like this, though, :

int f(int, va_list arguments)

you can write:

func swiftF(x: Int, arguments: CVarArgType...) -> Int {
  return withVaList(arguments) { f(x, $0) }
