exercism fetch rust hello-world
The classical introductory exercise. Just say "Hello, World!".
"Hello, World!" is the traditional first program for beginning programming in a new language or environment.
The objectives are simple:
- Write a function that returns the string "Hello, World!".
- Run the test suite and make sure that it succeeds.
- Submit your solution and check it at the website.
If everything goes well, you will be ready to fetch your first real exercise.
Refer to the exercism help page for Rust installation and learning resources.
Writing the Code
Execute the tests with:
$ cargo test
All but the first test have been ignored. After you get the first test to
pass, remove the ignore flag (
#[ignore]) from the next test and get the tests
to pass again. The test file is located in the
tests directory. You can
also remove the ignore flag from all the tests to get them to run all at once
if you wish.
Make sure to read the Crates and Modules chapter if you haven't already, it will help you with organizing your files.
