    "double-frees"? Sounds like it's time to start rewriting pieces in Rust!

      What's about RAII :-)

        If you knew the first thing about engineering, you'd know there no robustness without some redundancy. What if the first free fails? The second one has your back!

            Rust, what a terrible language. too lazy to type out "function" but not too lazy to type out "let" a million times.

              Doesn't understand (functional) programming,

              still goes ahead to spam the forum with his anti-Rust BS...

                Care to substantiate what i said has anything to do with functional programming or are you just going to post flaming ad hominem bs?

                  Gladly.

                  For starters typing out "function" is not a must but simply an outdated design pattern. In a perfect, functional world you wouldn't even need to append a function with "fn" but introduce functions implicitly or, in the case of anonymous functions, with fat arrows.

                  Secondly, "let" is a lambda abstraction used to bind a variable/function definition to a restricted scope.
                  Utilizing thin arrows as pointers we can also use let to create variable bindings to a function. Like so:

                  Code:
                   
                   let f: fn(i32) -> i32;
