Compiler Explorer and Rust

Well, I just learned something fun. There is a site that makes it easy to see what assembly code is generated for some code in any of dozens of languages, including C and Rust. You get to choose the compiler version and specify the options. Here I wanted to see whether at opt-level 3 the compiler would combine these two calls (it doesn’t):

You can even bring up the code generated by two compiler versions, or two compiler settings, side by side for comparison. Awesome tool!
