The Rust Language Reference

This document is the primary reference for the Rust programming language.

This document is not normative. It may include details that are specific to rustc itself, and should not be taken as a specification for the Rust language. We intend to produce such a document someday, but this is what we have for now.


  • rustc (the Rust compiler).
  • mdbook (use cargo install mdbook to install it).

Build steps

First, go to the repository folder and test the code snippets to catch compilation errors:

cd reference
mdbook test

And then generate the book:

mdbook build

The generated HTML will be in the docs folder.
