Struct serde::lib::core::io::Error

1.0.0 · source · []
pub struct Error {
    repr: Repr,
}
Expand description

The error type for I/O operations of the Read, Write, Seek, and associated traits.

Errors mostly originate from the underlying OS, but custom instances of Error can be created with crafted error messages and a particular value of ErrorKind.

Fields

repr: Repr

Implementations

Creates a new I/O error from a known kind of error as well as an arbitrary error payload.

This function is used to generically create I/O errors which do not originate from the OS itself. The error argument is an arbitrary payload which will be contained in this Error.

If no extra payload is required, use the From conversion from ErrorKind.

Examples
use std::io::{Error, ErrorKind};

// errors can be created from strings
let custom_error = Error::new(ErrorKind::Other, "oh no!");

// errors can also be created from other errors
let custom_error2 = Error::new(ErrorKind::Interrupted, custom_error);

// creating an error without payload
let eof_error = Error::from(ErrorKind::UnexpectedEof);
🔬 This is a nightly-only experimental API. (io_error_other)

Creates a new I/O error from an arbitrary error payload.

This function is used to generically create I/O errors which do not originate from the OS itself. It is a shortcut for Error::new with ErrorKind::Other.

Examples
#![feature(io_error_other)]

use std::io::Error;

// errors can be created from strings
let custom_error = Error::other("oh no!");

// errors can also be created from other errors
let custom_error2 = Error::other(custom_error);

Returns an error representing the last OS error which occurred.

This function reads the value of errno for the target platform (e.g. GetLastError on Windows) and will return a corresponding instance of Error for the error code.

This should be called immediately after a call to a platform function, otherwise the state of the error value is indeterminate. In particular, other standard library functions may call platform functions that may (or may not) reset the error value even if they succeed.

Examples
use std::io::Error;

let os_error = Error::last_os_error();
println!("last OS error: {os_error:?}");

Creates a new instance of an Error from a particular OS error code.

Examples

On Linux:

use std::io;

let error = io::Error::from_raw_os_error(22);
assert_eq!(error.kind(), io::ErrorKind::InvalidInput);

On Windows:

use std::io;

let error = io::Error::from_raw_os_error(10022);
assert_eq!(error.kind(), io::ErrorKind::InvalidInput);

Returns the OS error that this error represents (if any).

If this Error was constructed via last_os_error or from_raw_os_error, then this function will return Some, otherwise it will return None.

Examples
use std::io::{Error, ErrorKind};

fn print_os_error(err: &Error) {
    if let Some(raw_os_err) = err.raw_os_error() {
        println!("raw OS error: {raw_os_err:?}");
    } else {
        println!("Not an OS error");
    }
}

fn main() {
    // Will print "raw OS error: ...".
    print_os_error(&Error::last_os_error());
    // Will print "Not an OS error".
    print_os_error(&Error::new(ErrorKind::Other, "oh no!"));
}

Returns a reference to the inner error wrapped by this error (if any).

If this Error was constructed via new then this function will return Some, otherwise it will return None.

Examples
use std::io::{Error, ErrorKind};

fn print_error(err: &Error) {
    if let Some(inner_err) = err.get_ref() {
        println!("Inner error: {inner_err:?}");
    } else {
        println!("No inner error");
    }
}

fn main() {
    // Will print "No inner error".
    print_error(&Error::last_os_error());
    // Will print "Inner error: ...".
    print_error(&Error::new(ErrorKind::Other, "oh no!"));
}

Returns a mutable reference to the inner error wrapped by this error (if any).

If this Error was constructed via new then this function will return Some, otherwise it will return None.

Examples
use std::io::{Error, ErrorKind};
use std::{error, fmt};
use std::fmt::Display;

#[derive(Debug)]
struct MyError {
    v: String,
}

impl MyError {
    fn new() -> MyError {
        MyError {
            v: "oh no!".to_string()
        }
    }

    fn change_message(&mut self, new_message: &str) {
        self.v = new_message.to_string();
    }
}

impl error::Error for MyError {}

impl Display for MyError {
    fn fmt(&self, f: &mut fmt::Formatter<'_>) -> fmt::Result {
        write!(f, "MyError: {}", &self.v)
    }
}

fn change_error(mut err: Error) -> Error {
    if let Some(inner_err) = err.get_mut() {
        inner_err.downcast_mut::<MyError>().unwrap().change_message("I've been changed!");
    }
    err
}

fn print_error(err: &Error) {
    if let Some(inner_err) = err.get_ref() {
        println!("Inner error: {inner_err}");
    } else {
        println!("No inner error");
    }
}

fn main() {
    // Will print "No inner error".
    print_error(&change_error(Error::last_os_error()));
    // Will print "Inner error: ...".
    print_error(&change_error(Error::new(ErrorKind::Other, MyError::new())));
}

Consumes the Error, returning its inner error (if any).

If this Error was constructed via new then this function will return Some, otherwise it will return None.

Examples
use std::io::{Error, ErrorKind};

fn print_error(err: Error) {
    if let Some(inner_err) = err.into_inner() {
        println!("Inner error: {inner_err}");
    } else {
        println!("No inner error");
    }
}

fn main() {
    // Will print "No inner error".
    print_error(Error::last_os_error());
    // Will print "Inner error: ...".
    print_error(Error::new(ErrorKind::Other, "oh no!"));
}

Returns the corresponding ErrorKind for this error.

Examples
use std::io::{Error, ErrorKind};

fn print_error(err: Error) {
    println!("{:?}", err.kind());
}

fn main() {
    // Will print "Uncategorized".
    print_error(Error::last_os_error());
    // Will print "AddrInUse".
    print_error(Error::new(ErrorKind::AddrInUse, "oh no!"));
}
