So, first of all, I’m a noob in Rust.
I am trying to do something really simple, which is to read formated data from a text file (mainly floating points from a database). I have looked around the web for StackOverflow-like solutions on this and stumbled on some very convoluted, Java-reeking ways to do that (which, due to the newness of the language, I have no idea if will even compile). Recently, I have seen that there is a text-io crate or something like that here (the last update on that was Oct’15). But…
Will there ever be any standard and simple way to do that (like scanf, or matlab’s importdata)? Is this a design decision I am not aware of?
Sorry if this question is already beaten up to death. I just cannot figure it out.
