Rust Brain Teasers
The Rust programming language is consistent and does its best to avoid surprising the programmer. Like all languages, though, Rust still has its quirks. But these quirks present a teaching opportunity. In this book, you'll work through a series of brain teasers that will challenge your understanding of Rust. By understanding the gaps in your knowledge, you can become better at what you do and avoid mistakes. Many of the teasers in this book come from the author's own experience creating software. Others derive from commonly asked questions in the Rust community. Regardless of their origin, these brain teasers are fun, and let's face it: who doesn't love a good puzzle, right?
What better way to exercise your brain and increase your Rust programming knowledge than with a collection of dynamic brain teasers? As you read through each of these puzzles and try to work out the answers, you'll not only learn about Rust's unique quirks and peculiarities, you'll al ...
Beginning Rust, 2nd Edition
Learn to program with Rust 2021 Edition, in an easy, step-by-step manner on Unix, the Linux shell, macOS, and the Windows command line. As you read this book, you'll build on the knowledge you gained in previous chapters and see what Rust has to offer.
Beginning Rust starts with the basics of Rust including how to name objects, control execution flow, and handle primitive types. You'll see how to do arithmetic, allocate memory, use iterators, and handle input/output. Once you have mastered these core skills, you'll work on handling errors and using the object-oriented features of Rust to build robust Rust applications in no time.
Only a basic knowledge of programming is required, preferably in C or C++. To understand this book, it's enough to know what integers and floating-point numbers are, and to distinguish identifiers from string literals. After reading this book, you'll be ready to build Rust applications. ...
For several consecutive years, Rust has been voted "most loved programming language" in Stack Overflow's annual developer survey. This open source systems programming language is now used for everything from game engines and operating systems to browser components and virtual reality simulation engines. But Rust is also an incredibly complex language with a notoriously difficult learning curve.
Rather than focusing on the language as a whole, this guide teaches Rust using a single small, complete, focused program in each chapter. Author Ken Youens-Clark shows you how to start, write, and test each of these programs to create a finished product. You'll learn how to handle errors in Rust read and write files, and use regular expressions, Rust types, structs, and more.
Discover how to: Use Rust's standard libraries and data types such as numbers, strings, vectors, structs, Options, and Results to create command-line programs; Write and test Rust ...
