Rust is a curly-brace, block-structured expression language. It visually resembles the C language family, but differs significantly in syntactic and semantic details.

Rust's 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.

In addition, Rust supports generic programming and metaprogramming, in both static and dynamic styles.

Rust is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.

Main features:

  • Compilation model: batch, ahead-of-time, C/C++ compatible
  • Type system: static structural-algebraic, with metadata
  • Type inference: yes, only local variables
  • Generic types: yes, only simple, non-turing-complete substitution
  • Concurrency: isolated tasks, message passing
  • Unique pointers: move semantics, no races or sharing
  • Memory safety: no buffer overflow, use before init, NULL or free()
  • Immutability: immutable by default, mutability is the special case
  • Garbage collection: optional, per-task, only "shared" types
  • Error handling: isolated tasks, unrecoverable unwinding
  • Text: utf8 strings, ucs4 characters
  • Tier 1 platforms: Linux, OSX, Windows
