Struct serde::lib::core::fs::DirEntry

1.0.0 · source ·
pub struct DirEntry(DirEntry);
Expand description

Entries returned by the ReadDir iterator.

An instance of DirEntry represents an entry inside of a directory on the filesystem. Each entry can be inspected via methods to learn about the full path or possibly other metadata through per-platform extension traits.

Platform-specific behavior

On Unix, the DirEntry struct contains an internal reference to the open directory. Holding DirEntry objects will consume a file handle even after the ReadDir iterator is dropped.

Note that this may change in the future.

Implementations

Returns the full path to the file that this entry represents.

The full path is created by joining the original path to read_dir with the filename of this entry.

Examples
use std::fs;

fn main() -> std::io::Result<()> {
    for entry in fs::read_dir(".")? {
        let dir = entry?;
        println!("{:?}", dir.path());
    }
    Ok(())
}

This prints output like:

"./whatever.txt"
"./foo.html"
"./hello_world.rs"

The exact text, of course, depends on what files you have in ..

Returns the metadata for the file that this entry points at.

This function will not traverse symlinks if this entry points at a symlink. To traverse symlinks use fs::metadata or fs::File::metadata.

Platform-specific behavior

On Windows this function is cheap to call (no extra system calls needed), but on Unix platforms this function is the equivalent of calling symlink_metadata on the path.

Examples
use std::fs;

if let Ok(entries) = fs::read_dir(".") {
    for entry in entries {
        if let Ok(entry) = entry {
            // Here, `entry` is a `DirEntry`.
            if let Ok(metadata) = entry.metadata() {
                // Now let's show our entry's permissions!
                println!("{:?}: {:?}", entry.path(), metadata.permissions());
            } else {
                println!("Couldn't get metadata for {:?}", entry.path());
            }
        }
    }
}

Returns the file type for the file that this entry points at.

This function will not traverse symlinks if this entry points at a symlink.

Platform-specific behavior

On Windows and most Unix platforms this function is free (no extra system calls needed), but some Unix platforms may require the equivalent call to symlink_metadata to learn about the target file type.

Examples
use std::fs;

if let Ok(entries) = fs::read_dir(".") {
    for entry in entries {
        if let Ok(entry) = entry {
            // Here, `entry` is a `DirEntry`.
            if let Ok(file_type) = entry.file_type() {
                // Now let's show our entry's file type!
                println!("{:?}: {:?}", entry.path(), file_type);
            } else {
                println!("Couldn't get file type for {:?}", entry.path());
            }
        }
    }
}

Returns the bare file name of this directory entry without any other leading path component.

Examples
use std::fs;

if let Ok(entries) = fs::read_dir(".") {
    for entry in entries {
        if let Ok(entry) = entry {
            // Here, `entry` is a `DirEntry`.
            println!("{:?}", entry.file_name());
        }
    }
}
