Does Rust have a REPL yet? Asking for a friend.

@bugaevc Yeah I know. I'm just pining for the fjords. 😞

@bugaevc @mjog it is very sad that everything produced by Google employee seems to be forced to comply with the Google CLA. It means that at some point Google can decide to make it official and start making unilateral decision for the project like with Android or Chromium

@mjog no and I guess it will never have one, because it is not a scripting language.

It _could_ be done, don't get me right. But it wouldn't be that usable IMO.

@musicmatze That not necessarily true, there were a couple of decent REPLs for Java, for example.

@mjog Really? Well, I guess having a REPL for Java is more ergonomic than having one for Rust, because in Java you do not have to care about type safety.
