Expand description

Change the owner and group of the specified path, without dereferencing symbolic links.

Identical to chown, except that if called on a symbolic link, this will change the owner and group of the link itself rather than the owner and group of the link target.

§Examples

use std::os::unix::fs;

fn main() -> std::io::Result<()> {
    fs::lchown("/symlink", Some(0), Some(0))?;
    Ok(())
}
