re: Part 1 You can probably see my Python shining through as I implemented a custom Counter struct to help me out. use std::collections::HashMap; ...
 

I love how you've used enumerate and skip together in your nested for loop. I struggled to find a clean solution like this.

 

Thanks! Yeah, I originally had a very manual nested for-loop set up, but after I got the tests passing, I decided to make an effort to do everything I could with iterators instead :) I've decided that the iterator module in Rust is where most of the magic that I'm missing from Python and Ruby lives.

This was still bothering me, but I found the Itertools crate and the tuple_combinations method. Check out my updated solution in the thread. Itertools makes iterators even more powerful.
