Welcome to the Longest Common Subsequence in Rust page! Here, you'll find the source code for this program as well as a description of how the program works.

```
use std::env::args;
use std::process::exit;
use std::str::FromStr;
fn usage() -> ! {
println!("Usage: please provide two lists in the format \"1, 2, 3, 4, 5\"");
exit(0);
}
fn parse_int<T: FromStr>(s: &str) -> Result<T, <T as FromStr>::Err> {
s.trim().parse::<T>()
}
fn parse_int_list<T: FromStr>(s: &str) -> Result<Vec<T>, <T as FromStr>::Err> {
s.split(',')
.map(parse_int)
.collect::<Result<Vec<T>, <T as FromStr>::Err>>()
}
type Matrix<T> = Vec<Vec<T>>;
// Longest Common Sequence
// Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longest_common_subsequence#Example_in_C#
//
// However, instead of storing lengths, an index to the subsequence is stored
fn longest_common_subsequence<T>(list1: &Vec<T>, list2: &Vec<T>) -> Vec<T>
where
T: Copy + Clone + PartialEq
{
// Initialize all subsequences to an empty sequence
let m = list1.len();
let n = list2.len();
let mut c: Matrix<usize> = vec![vec![0; n + 1]; m + 1];
let mut subsequences: Matrix<T> = vec![vec![]];
// Find the longest common subsequence using prior subsequences
for i in 1..=m {
for j in 1..=n {
// If common element found, create new subsequence based on prior
// subsequence with the common element appended
if list1[i - 1] == list2[j - 1] {
c[i][j] = subsequences.len();
let mut new_subsequence = subsequences[c[i - 1][j - 1]].clone();
new_subsequence.push(list1[i - 1]);
subsequences.push(new_subsequence);
}
// Else, reuse the longer of the two prior subsequences
else {
let index1 = c[i][j - 1];
let index2 = c[i - 1][j];
c[i][j] = if subsequences[index1].len() > subsequences[index2].len() {

}

index2
}
}
}
}
subsequences[c[m][n]].clone()
}
fn main() {
let mut args = args().skip(1);
// Convert 1st command-line argument to list of integers
let list1: Vec<i32> = args

// Get longest common subsequence and display it
let result: Vec<i32> = longest_common_subsequence::<i32>(&list1, &list2);
println!("{result:?}");
}
```
