Trait std::ascii::AsciiExt1.0.0 [] [src]

pub trait AsciiExt {
    type Owned;
    fn is_ascii(&self) -> bool;
    fn to_ascii_uppercase(&self) -> Self::Owned;
    fn to_ascii_lowercase(&self) -> Self::Owned;

Extension methods for ASCII-subset only operations on string slices.

Be aware that operations on seemingly non-ASCII characters can sometimes have unexpected results. Consider this example:

use std::ascii::AsciiExt;

assert_eq!("café".to_ascii_uppercase(), "CAFÉ");
assert_eq!("café".to_ascii_uppercase(), "CAFé");Run

In the first example, the lowercased string is represented "cafe\u{301}" (the last character is an acute accent combining character). Unlike the other characters in the string, the combining character will not get mapped to an uppercase variant, resulting in "CAFE\u{301}". In the second example, the lowercased string is represented "caf\u{e9}" (the last character is a single Unicode character representing an 'e' with an acute accent). Since the last character is defined outside the scope of ASCII, it will not get mapped to an uppercase variant, resulting in "CAF\u{e9}".

Associated Types

Container type for copied ASCII characters.

Required Methods

Checks if the value is within the ASCII range.

Examples

use std::ascii::AsciiExt;

let ascii = 'a';
let utf8 = '❤';

assert!(ascii.is_ascii());
assert!(!utf8.is_ascii());Run

Makes a copy of the string in ASCII upper case.

ASCII letters 'a' to 'z' are mapped to 'A' to 'Z', but non-ASCII letters are unchanged.

Examples

use std::ascii::AsciiExt;

let ascii = 'a';
let utf8 = '❤';

assert_eq!('A', ascii.to_ascii_uppercase());
assert_eq!('❤', utf8.to_ascii_uppercase());Run

Makes a copy of the string in ASCII lower case.

ASCII letters 'A' to 'Z' are mapped to 'a' to 'z', but non-ASCII letters are unchanged.

Examples

use std::ascii::AsciiExt;

let ascii = 'A';
let utf8 = '❤';

assert_eq!('a', ascii.to_ascii_lowercase());
assert_eq!('❤', utf8.to_ascii_lowercase());Run

Checks that two strings are an ASCII case-insensitive match.

Same as to_ascii_lowercase(a) == to_ascii_lowercase(b), but without allocating and copying temporary strings.

Examples

use std::ascii::AsciiExt;

let ascii1 = 'A';
let ascii2 = 'a';
let ascii3 = 'A';
let ascii4 = 'z';

assert!(ascii1.eq_ignore_ascii_case(&ascii2));
assert!(ascii1.eq_ignore_ascii_case(&ascii3));
assert!(!ascii1.eq_ignore_ascii_case(&ascii4));Run

Converts this type to its ASCII upper case equivalent in-place.

See to_ascii_uppercase for more information.

Examples

use std::ascii::AsciiExt;

let mut ascii = 'a';

ascii.make_ascii_uppercase();

assert_eq!('A', ascii);Run

Converts this type to its ASCII lower case equivalent in-place.

See to_ascii_lowercase for more information.

Examples

use std::ascii::AsciiExt;

let mut ascii = 'A';

ascii.make_ascii_lowercase();

assert_eq!('a', ascii);Run
