The Rust Book #

My notes on The Rust Programming Language, known to Rust enthusiasts simply as “the book”.

Chapter 4 #

  • The discussion of the stack and the heap is good, this kind of “low-level” thinking is something you never do in Python.
  • Rust returns memory automatically once the variable that owns it goes out of scope. Very different to languages with automatic garbage collection (most modern languages). Known in C as Resource Acquisition Is Initialization (RAII).
