TWiR quote of the week


#5

@msiemens yes, I’ll give the source too.

Thanks for the suggestions! Keep them coming.


#6

Is Brian @horse_rust on Twitter? : )


#7

11:21 < hoverbear> WrekitWralf: Right now Rust’s Web libraries are still in a lot of flux. reem has quite a few god projects regarding that.

#8

Mitchell Nordine has a very diplomatic way of describing the borrow-checker.

Rust tells me at compile time why what I’m trying to do is probably not a wise choice.

The complete quote:

I’ve found that Rust has forced me to learn many of the things that I was slowly learning as “good practise” in C/C++ before I could even compile my code. Rather than learning by trying to solve segfaults, debugging my pointer messes, etc, Rust tells me at compile time why what I’m trying to do is probably not a wise choice.


#9

Here’s one from Huon

15:35 <Binero> so a Cow is a String that clones as soon as you try to mutate it?
13:53 <scott> it clones when you try to mootate it

from #rust


#10

Another one that I’m probably not going to use this week, from #rust-internals

11:51 < eddyb> aturon: well, doener is investigating some Drop Ex Machina that also makes the type "own managed"

#11

Somebody say something funny this week.


#12

Fear not, this is Rust, not some scruffy loosely-typed, garbage-collected, non-blocking language!

Andrew Hobden, Getting Acquainted with MIO


#13

nrc | If we had a Rust equivalent of JSON
nrc | we should have a basic version and call it brson!

Nick Cameron - #rust-internals


#14

Thank you! Keep 'em coming!


#15

Two days until the next TWiR!


#16

qdwang | so I use HashMap<Vec<Rc<SomeStruct>>, u32> to detect a Vec<Rc<SomeStruct> index

qdwang - #rust

I have no idea what he is trying to do

Also note that he seemed to think that this was an improvement over HashSet<Rc<ComplexStruct>>


#17

-*- jdm shivers
<jdm> I want my furnace to start working again
<jgraham> Somehow the word “furnace” makes me feel like jdm is actually Saurman building an Orc army. Which I suppose is one alternative to GSoC :wink:


#18

Lies! That was 3 days ago! :slight_smile:


#19

“earth and mars are Planets, they are not Rcs.”

Oh, how could I forget

#21

wait when/where was this?


#22

Everywhere. Everyday. :slight_smile:


#23

stackoverflow, @shepmaster: This would be a good example of what Rust helps prevent, but you’ve
deliberately turned off the safety checks, and now we are back to C.

23:12 < chickensalad> steveklabnik: you should get free gyros for life, funded by the rust community
