pub static UNREACHABLE_PUB: &Lint
Expand description

The unreachable_pub lint triggers for pub items not reachable from the crate root.


mod foo {
    pub mod bar {




A bare pub visibility may be misleading if the item is not actually publicly exported from the crate. The pub(crate) visibility is recommended to be used instead, which more clearly expresses the intent that the item is only visible within its own crate.

This lint is “allow” by default because it will trigger for a large amount existing Rust code, and has some false-positives. Eventually it is desired for this to become warn-by-default.
