Crate cstr [] [src]

A macro for getting &'static CStr from literal.

This macro checks whether the given literal is valid for CStr at compile time, and returns a static reference of CStr.

Note that it currently cannot be used to initialize constants due to restriction of Rust.

Also, it currently only supports a UTF-8 string as input because Rust's tokenizer only accepts that without the b prefix. This may be expanded in the future if necessary.


#[macro_use] extern crate cstr;
use std::ffi::CStr;

let test = cstr!("hello");
assert_eq!(test, CStr::from_bytes_with_nul(b"hello\0").unwrap());
