Rust doesn't have a specification
Therefore all Rust code is undefined behavior
Therefore Rust has more undefined behavior than C
Therefore Rust < C
There is a reason of why there isn't one yet ^^
The hacker in me is thinking it's better to allow undefined behavior.
This is true for many programming languages. Only a minority has a public specification. (reference: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_programming_languages )
@txt_file just because everyone does it doesn't make it good
True. I also prefer languages with specification. Makes it possible to have more than one implementation.
I wanted to say that it is a general problem and not only rust.
@sir Bitcoin doesn't have a specification neither 🤔
@dammkewl it does... and it's also shit
@sir lol, point me to this mythical specification you claim to exist.
@sir whitepaper != specification
@dammkewl fair enough. Bitcoin is still shit, though, this just makes it more so. Doesn't absolve Rust
@sir What about Bitcoin is it, that has you calling it that?
@dammkewl the code is terrible, it's a huge waste of electricity, it doesn't meet its stated goal, and it makes GPUs unobtainable for many people. And it doesn't have a spec.
I can't comment about the code (no pun intended)
The waste of electricity is a strawman argument
GPU's are only used for shitcoins since years
But i'm glad we agree it doesn't have a spec 😂 🍻
@dammkewl the waste of electricity is not a strawman argument. Electricity isn't free, it comes with a cost to society and drives up power for people doing productive things. GPUs might only be used by idiots but that doesn't mean *coin hasn't driven up the prices. And I failed to mention that bitcoin brings out the worst in people!
@sir Hah more strawman arguments. I don't think we're going to agree in this one though. Thanks for the fun talk!
@sir Oh I have long appreciated that. Down with faddish new languages
