Technical requirements

To run the examples, you will need a computer running on a CPU using the x86-64 instruction set. Most popular desktop, server, and laptop CPUs out there today use this instruction set, as do most modern CPUs from Intel and AMD (which are most CPU models from these manufacturers produced in the last 10–15 years).

One caveat is that the modern M-series Macs use the ARM ISA (instruction set), which won’t be compatible with the examples we write here. However, older Intel-based Macs do, so you should be able to use a Mac to follow along if you don’t have the latest version.

If you don’t have a computer using this instruction set available, you have a few options to install Rust and run the examples:

  • Mac users on M-series chips can use Rosetta (which ships with newer MacOS versions) and get the examples working with just four simple steps. You’ll find the instructions in the repository under ch05/
