Rust doesn't have a specification? Weird.

@skybrian
Yeah, they have lots of documents describing behavior (e.g. doc.rust-lang.org/reference/in ) but no complete spec
I think it's because 1) the language is complex And 2) it's constantly changing
I mean, rust 1.0 brought some stability, but rust 2018 is still significantly different from rust 2015, and there are lots of unable features getting stabilized

Rust has somewhat of a (perhaps a perl-like) culture to solve language problems with syntax, and so creating a language spec is hard this syntax is changing so often
