Rust

Rust

Rust is an open source, curly-brace, block-structured expression, general purpose, multi-paradigm, compiled language. It visually resembles the C language family, but differs significantly in syntactic and semantic details.

Its design is oriented toward concerns of "programming in the large", that is, of creating and maintaining boundaries both abstract and operational that preserve large-system integrity, availability and concurrency.


Rust supports a mixture of imperative procedural, concurrent actor, object-oriented and pure functional styles. Rust also supports generic programming and metaprogramming, in both static and dynamic styles.

Features include:

  • Type - system static, nominal, linear, algebraic, locally inferred
  • Multi-paradigm: pure-functional, concurrent-actor, imperative-procedural, OO
    • First-class functions, cheap non-escaping closures
    • Algebraic data types (called enums) with pattern matching
    • Method implementations on any type
    • Traits, which share aspects of type classes and interfaces
  • Memory safety - no null or dangling pointers, no buffer overflows, no use-before-initialize or use-after-move
  • Concurrency - lightweight tasks with message passing, no shared memory
  • Generics - type parameterization with type classes 
  • Exception handling - unrecoverable unwinding with task isolation: task failure / unwinding, trapping, RAII / dtors
  • Memory model - optional task-local GC, safe pointer types with region analysis
  • Compilation model - ahead-of-time, C/C++ compatible
  • Lightweight tasks (coroutines) with expanding stacks
  • Fast asynchronous, copyless message passing
  • Optional garbage collected pointers
  • All types may be explicitly allocated on the stack or interior to other types
  • Static, native compilation using LLVM
  • Direct and simple interface to C code
  • Works with existing native toolchains, GDB, Valgrind, Instruments, etc
  • Multi-platform
