Rust programming language

Has anyone heard of Rust? What are your thoughts on this new programming language?

Ain’t sure but it isn’t new, yes ? Go is more recent AFAIK.
Anyway, never tried to use it, but based on the small, unrepresentative amount of line i’ve seen, seems kinda messy. Just my 2 cents though.

Oh I see.

their for loops are completely fucking retarded.

C-like syntax for loop:

for (int i = 10; i < 0; i -= 2)
    // Does something

How the hell do you do something like that for Rust when it is more like

for 0..10
    // Does something


The documentation seems quite good:

Anyway I prefer the Rust version although C’s syntax is just like Plan9’s rc shell:

; for(i in one two three) echo $i

I like that because it’s quicker to type than the Bourne-style shell loops :slight_smile:

THat looks confusing to be honest lol.

I guess it’s just like any other programming language, once you get used to it… ¯\(ツ)
I remember when I started programming in Perl, I couldn’t get use to the 3 types variables only, with dedicated pointer on each. It just took me some time to make it become natural, now I don’t feel like it’s hard anymore.

Oh I see mate.

One way to do it is like this:

for element in (0..=10).rev().step_by(2) {
    // Do something

I’ll admit that it does look weird, with ..= (which denotes an inclusive range) and having to reverse the range and all that.


THanks for that :slight_smile:
