Hi rustaceans! What are you working on this week? Did you discover something new, you want to share?

    I’m still working on a benchmark for my wordle solver. The thing itself works, but I want it to print statuses while benching.

    I cannot do it. I’ve spent hours on this, even tried to make the bench async and run it in a separate Tokio task. I cannot share my bench strict over a thread, and cloning is impossible too, because of something.

    Sometimes, the lifetime and ownership stuff of rust really gets annoying. C would’ve just done the stuff and be done with it. (Maybe)

      I you share your code here, maybe someone can help.

        The whole code is here

        (It does not compile right now)

        I understand why it does not work, but I don’t know how to achieve what I’m looking for.

        This is the code snippet from the binary:

            let wl = BuiltinWList::default();
            let builder: GameBuilder<'_, BuiltinWList> = game::Game::builder(&wl)
            let solver: AnyBuiltinSolver<'_, BuiltinWList> = cli.solver.to_solver(&wl);
            let bench = BuiltinBenchmark::build(&wl, solver, builder, cli.threads)?;
            loop {
                println!("{}", bench.report());
                if bench.is_finished() {

        From the CI
