Function std::fs::read_dir1.0.0 [] [src]

pub fn read_dir<P: AsRef<Path>>(path: P) -> Result<ReadDir>

Returns an iterator over the entries within a directory.

The iterator will yield instances of io::Result<DirEntry>. New errors may be encountered after an iterator is initially constructed.

Platform-specific behavior

This function currently corresponds to the opendir function on Unix and the FindFirstFile function on Windows. Note that, this may change in the future.


This function will return an error in the following situations, but is not limited to just these cases:


use std::io;
use std::fs::{self, DirEntry};
use std::path::Path;

// one possible implementation of walking a directory only visiting files
fn visit_dirs(dir: &Path, cb: &Fn(&DirEntry)) -> io::Result<()> {
    if dir.is_dir() {
        for entry in fs::read_dir(dir)? {
            let entry = entry?;
            let path = entry.path();
            if path.is_dir() {
                visit_dirs(&path, cb)?;
            } else {
