Making Rust as fast as Go (fake news)  ↦

Is this more proof of Cunningham’s law, which says, “The best way to get the right answer on the Internet is not to ask a question; it’s to post the wrong answer.”

Update: as some keen HN commenters have pointed out, it looks like the rust program is not actually equivalent to the go program. The go program parses the string once, while the rust program parses it repeatedly inside every loop. It’s quite late in Sydney as I write this so I’m not up for a fix right now, but this post is probably Fake News.

Read Christian’s post then have fun in the comments and discussions on HN and Reddit analyzing his hypothesis, which includes a repo of code to backup his ideas.
