Rust

  • cargo-careful — Execute Rust code carefully, with extra checking along the way. It builds the standard library with debug assertions. Here are some of the checks this enables:
  • get_unchecked in slices performs bounds checks * copy, copy_nonoverlapping, and write_bytes check that pointers are aligned and non-null and (if applicable) non-overlapping {NonNull,NonZero*,...}::new_unchecked check that the value is valid * plenty of internal consistency checks in the collection types * mem::zeroed and the deprecated mem::uninitialized panic if the type does not allow that kind of initialization
  • loom — Concurrency permutation testing tool for Rust. It runs a test many times, permuting the possible concurrent executions of that test.

  • MIRI — An interpreter for Rust's mid-level intermediate representation, which can detect certain classes of undefined behavior like out-of-bounds memory accesses and use-after-free.

  • puffin — Instrumentation profiler for Rust.
