[][src]Function fs_extra::file::copy

pub fn copy<P, Q>(from: P, to: Q, options: &CopyOptions) -> Result<u64> where
    P: AsRef<Path>,
    Q: AsRef<Path>, 

Copies the contents of one file to another. This function will also copy the permission bits of the original file to the destination file.


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

  • This from path is not a file.
  • This from file does not exist.
  • The current process does not have the permission rights to access from or write to.


This example is not tested
extern crate fs_extra;
use fs_extra::file::copy;

let options = CopyOptions::new(); //Initialize default values for CopyOptions
copy("dir1/foo.txt", "dir2/bar.txt", &options)?; // Copy dir1/foo.txt to dir2/bar.txt
