os_str_bytes 6.6.1

Convert between byte sequences and platform-native strings

OsStr Bytes

This crate allows interacting with the data stored by OsStr and OsString, without resorting to panics or corruption for invalid UTF-8. Thus, methods can be used that are already defined on [u8] and Vec<u8>.

Typically, the only way to losslessly construct OsStr or OsString from a byte sequence is to use OsStr::new(str::from_utf8(bytes)?), which requires the bytes to be valid in UTF-8. However, since this crate makes conversions directly between the platform encoding and raw bytes, even some strings invalid in UTF-8 can be converted.

Rust version support

The minimum supported Rust toolchain version depends on the platform:

Minor version updates may increase these version requirements. However, the previous two Rust releases will always be supported. If the minimum Rust version must not be increased, use a tilde requirement to prevent updating this crate's minor version:

os_str_bytes = "~6.6"
