I got the rust compiler to crash. File bug?


I have created a small command line application for viewing markdown files.
It uses the rocket.rs web framework. The last couple of days I’ve struggled to get it to compile.

Today, i tested some more, and managed to get the compiler to crash both on my computer (windows 10) and on travis-ci (https://travis-ci.org/sighol/simplewiki/builds/446856967).

Do you believe that it is a compiler bug, as the text suggests?
I have tried both 2018-10-25 and 2018-10-19 compilers. They both fail.

Should I file a bug report?

I am very much a rust beginner, so I may have done a lot of things that are completly wrong.

Yes, in general it’s useful to report crashes/panics of the compiler, especially when the latest nightly fails.

This particular error may have been reported already: https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/55287


The issue has been fixed.
The build is green again!
