Function anyhow::Ok

source ·
pub fn Ok<T>(t: T) -> Result<T>
Expand description

Equivalent to Ok::<_, anyhow::Error>(value).

This simplifies creation of an anyhow::Result in places where type inference cannot deduce the E type of the result — without needing to write Ok::<_, anyhow::Error>(value).

One might think that anyhow::Result::Ok(value) would work in such cases but it does not.
