Combine 3 - Partial parsing in Rust by Markus Westerlind
Combine is a parser combinator library for the Rust programming language. I first announced version 3 of Combine back in August and back then I definitely expected to have a stable version by now. However other projects (cough gluon cough) got in the way and Combine fell to the wayside. It didn’t help that I didn’t have a killer feature for 3.0 either, user-defined error types make it possible to define parsers usable in #[no_std] crates which is great when you need it but it is still a fairly niche use-case.
Memory Safety in Rust: A Case Study with C by Will Crichton
To demonstrate the value of Rust's memory safety rules, I contrast the implementation of a simple vector library in C and Rust, highlighting where and how Rust's static analysis can prevent tricky memory errors.
