Box, String, Vec, Rc, and Arc have this in common: they’re not dumb.
This episode, we take a close look at smart pointer types—from a few we’ve already talked about, like Box, Vec, and String, to some new ones, like Rc and Arc.
What smart pointers are, and what makes them ‘smart’.
Why we want or need smart pointers.
A bit about Box.
A lot more about Rc and Arc.
