I have tried to build a low level trie impl in Rust and just gave up because it was too much work making the compiler happy. I then went ahead and wrote in in C++ in a couple of evenings. I would still like to know whatever this is possible / viable in Rust.
I’m assuming that this is the case, but I don’t know how to start. Any dear reader feels like taking this upon themselves to port the C++ code to Rust? It is all working and there are unit tests, and I think that the design should match well the Rust design philosophy, but the borrow checker actively worked to me give up doing that in Rust, and I would like to both see this implemented in Rust and hear what the experience was like.
