Panicking

✅ Open the src/bin/panic.rs file and click the "Run" button.

This program attempts to index an array beyond its length and this results in a panic.

ERROR:panic_log -- panicked at 'index out of bounds: the len is 3 but the index is 3', src/bin/panic.rs:29:13
stack backtrace:

In no_std programs the behavior of panic is defined using the #[panic_handler] attribute. In the example, the panic handler is defined in the panic_log crate but we can also implement it manually:

✅ Comment out the panic_log import and add the following function to the example:


#![allow(unused)]
fn main() {
#[panic_handler]
fn panic(info: &core::panic::PanicInfo) -> ! {
    log::error!("{}", info);
    loop {
        asm::bkpt()
    }
}
}

Now run the program again. Try changing the format string of the error! macro.
