[][src]Function fs_extra::move_items

pub fn move_items<P, Q>(
    from_items: &[P],
    to: Q,
    options: &CopyOptions
) -> Result<u64> where
    P: AsRef<Path>,
    Q: AsRef<Path>, 

Moves list directories and files to another place using recursive method. This function will also copy the permission bits of the original files to destionation files (not for directories).


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

  • List from contains file or directory does not exist.

  • List from contains file or directory with invalid name.

  • The current process does not have the permission rights to access to file from lists from or to.


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

 let options = dir::CopyOptions::new(); //Initialize default values for CopyOptions

 // move dir1 and file1.txt to target/dir1 and target/file1.txt
 let mut from_paths = Vec::new();
 move_items(&from_paths, "target", &options)?;
