Rust is a systems programming language sponsored by Mozilla Research, which describes it as a "safe, concurrent, practical language," supporting functional and imperative-procedural paradigms. Rust is syntactically similar to C++, but its designers intend it to provide better memory safety while maintaining performance. Rust is an open source programming language.

Example from Compiler Explorer:
// Type your code here, or load an example. pub fn square(num: i32) -> i32 { num * num } // If you use `main()`, declare it as `pub` to see it in the output: // pub fn main() { ... }
Example from Riju:
fn main() { println!("Hello, world!"); }
Example from hello-world:
fn main() { println!("Hello World"); }
// Hello world in Rust fn main() { println!("Hello World!"); }
Example from Linguist:
extern crate foo; extern crate bar; use foo::{self, quix}; use bar::car::*; use bar; fn main() { println!("Hello {}", "World"); panic!("Goodbye") }
