I'm very new to contributing code in general, and a noob at github. I created 2 functions for rust that i thought were necessary, and i tried to submit them, but the "pr checks" doesn't seem to accept the code, i tested the code on my computer and it works fine, it's only two functions nothing crazy (it should run). I've been racking my brain about why it's not building, it keeps saying "error: function is never used", that being the only 2 errors, (one for each function). I have no idea if i'm being dumb, but i may need some guidance on how to contribute code. If you want to see the code in question the link is: (https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/pull/74178).
we use https://github.com/rust-lang/rustfmt/ to format both the standard library + the compiler.
You can run
./x.py fmt to fix the current errors.
If it says function not used, that might not show with fmt. Try
x.py check which should reproduce the error.
You may also have forgotten to put
pub on the functions, without that they won't be usable outside the standard library itself
