yeah - CLI tool for looking up OUIs

A background-goal of mine this last month has been to learn enough of Rust to code something useful that I can use at work. In spare moments since the new year I’ve been reading “the book”—which has been more than helpful in learning the basics of Rust and what makes it such an interesting, powerful language.

Fast-forward to today and I’m happy to share the useful something that I managed to make with Rust. Below is the README from yeah‘s GitHub page:
