This is the first of what I intend to be a weekly series of posts related to my favorite programming language. I here take Rust weeks to begin each Friday, since Stable releases of the Rust distribution (language and included libraries) are to be released on that week day. This is also a great excuse to write more regularly.
I read a high quality post titled Rust ownership, the hard way. I learned quite a bit going through it, like the meaning of
#[derive(Clone, Copy)], which I see a lot but never knew what it meant. I also learned that there are 7 ways to introduce a variable binding (taking
fooas the name of that binding):
let foo ... for foo in ... (for loop) foo => ... (match block) if let foo = ... (if block) while let foo = ... (while loop) fn func(foo: ... (function argument) | foo | ... (closure argument)
