Sublist in Rust
Write a function to determine if a list is a sublist of another list.
exercism fetch rust sublist
Given two lists determine if the first list is contained within the second list, if the second list is contained within the first list, if both lists are contained within each other or if none of these are true.
Specifically, a list A is a sublist of list B if by dropping 0 or more elements from the front of B and 0 or more elements from the back of B you get a list that's completely equal to A.
- A = [1, 2, 3], B = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], A is a sublist of B
- A = [3, 4, 5], B = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], A is a sublist of B
- A = [3, 4], B = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], A is a sublist of B
- A = [1, 2, 3], B = [1, 2, 3], A is equal to B
- A = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], B = [2, 3, 4], A is a superlist of B
- A = [1, 2, 4], B = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], A is not a superlist of, sublist of or equal to B

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, open the tests source file wich is located in the
and remove the
#[ignore] flag from the next test and get the tests to pass
again. Each separate test is a function with
#[test] flag above it.
Continue, until you pass every test.
If you wish to run all tests without editing the tests source file, use:
$ cargo test -- --ignored
To run a specific test, for example
some_test, you can use:
$ cargo test some_test
If the specfic test is ignored use:
$ cargo test some_test -- --ignored
To learn more about Rust tests refer to the online test documentation
Make sure to read the Modules chapter if you haven't already, it will help you with organizing your files.
