Modularize this!

Today, we are talking about modules, packages, and APIs in Rust. Taking a bit of a breather after some pretty hard material the last few weeks.

For reference, the Rust book section on Crates and Modules will be very helpful.


I accidentally called this episode 5, instead of episode 6. Whoops.

Just before the 15:00 mark, while discussing libraries, I referred to “” when I meant to say “”. Slips of the tongue inspired by the fact that Rust (delightfully) uses Markdown for its documentation.

§Module Docs!

As you’ve no doubt noted if you’ve actually looked at the show notes along the way, these are in fact module docs! Because we’re inside a module marked off by being a file, we have to use the //! style of documentation comments to mark them off. However, as you’ll see below, if we structure or declare modules in other ways, we will not have the same restriction.
