That's sort of depressing. "Just make your own virtual memory space to get around Rust's PITA memory management" sounds like giving up.



If you don't want to manage memory, why are you using any systems language? Python, JS, Go, and any number of other languages will be much kinder to you.


What I meant to say (hence the downvotes...) is that Rust's "borrow checker" is enough of a nuisance that this graph library replaced memory addresses, i.e. pointers, with indexes into an array, effectively creating its own virtual address space.
