rustc main.rs) hello world program from The Book takes about 90 seconds.
I am on 32 bit Windows 7 and rustc 1.25.0. I have used C++, java, and python in the past and didn’t have noticeable problem with speed.
I recently tried to install Go and had the similar kind of problem but, for Go, even
go --version and
go clean (delete object files) took about 20 seconds and 50 seconds, respectively. By contrast,
rustc --version brings up the result instantly. Also, I recently compiled a few C++ files with a makefile and didn’t notice any problem with speed.
I am very interested in this language and would like to make 2d games with it. I am trying to get back into programming. I would appreciate any suggestion on things to try. Thanks.
