  • zero-cost abstractions
  • move semantics
  • guaranteed memory safety
  • threads without data races
  • trait-based generics
  • pattern matching
  • type inference
  • minimal runtime

On this environment

Installed on this environment is the Rust compiler. You will also find a simple hello world rust file hello_world.rs under the /var/code folder

To compile the hello_world.rs type the following command into the terminal
