All variable bindings have a scope where they are valid and it is an error to use a variable outside its scope:

struct Point(i32, i32);

fn main() {
        let p = Point(3, 4);
        println!("x: {}", p.0);
    println!("y: {}", p.1);
  • At the end of the scope, the variable is dropped and the data is freed.
  • A destructor can run here to free up resources.
  • We say that the variable owns the value.
