Tuple and tuple indexing expressions

Tuple expressions

Tuples are written by enclosing zero or more comma-separated expressions in parentheses. They are used to create tuple-typed values.

# #![allow(unused_variables)]
#fn main() {
(0.0, 4.5);
("a", 4usize, true);

You can disambiguate a single-element tuple from a value in parentheses with a comma:

# #![allow(unused_variables)]
#fn main() {
(0,); // single-element tuple
(0); // zero in parentheses

Tuple indexing expressions

Tuples and struct tuples can be indexed using the number corresponding to the position of the field. The index must be written as a decimal literal with no underscores or suffix. Tuple indexing expressions also differ from field expressions in that they can unambiguously be called as a function. In all other aspects they have the same behavior.

# #![allow(unused_variables)]
#fn main() {
# struct Point(f32, f32);
let pair = (1, 2);
assert_eq!(pair.1, 2);
let unit_x = Point(1.0, 0.0);
assert_eq!(unit_x.0, 1.0);
