Function std::io::stdin1.0.0 [] [src]

pub fn stdin() -> Stdin

Constructs a new handle to the standard input of the current process.

Each handle returned is a reference to a shared global buffer whose access is synchronized via a mutex. If you need more explicit control over locking, see the lock() method.

Examples

Using implicit synchronization:

use std::io::{self, Read};

let mut buffer = String::new();
try!(io::stdin().read_to_string(&mut buffer));Run

Using explicit synchronization:

use std::io::{self, Read};

let mut buffer = String::new();
let stdin = io::stdin();
let mut handle = stdin.lock();

try!(handle.read_to_string(&mut buffer));Run
