Struct std::fs::DirEntry1.0.0 [] [src]

pub struct DirEntry(_);

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.

Methods

impl DirEntry
[src]

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;
for entry in try!(fs::read_dir(".")) {
    let dir = try!(entry);
    println!("{:?}", dir.path());
}Run

This prints output like:

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

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

Return the metadata 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 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());
            }
        }
    }
}Run

Return 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());
            }
        }
    }
}Run

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());
        }
    }
}Run
