Expand description

A trait for passing path arguments.

This is similar to AsRef<Path>, but is implemented for more kinds of strings and can convert into more kinds of strings.


use rustix::ffi::CStr;
use rustix::io;
use rustix::path::Arg;

pub fn touch<P: Arg>(path: P) -> io::Result<()> {
    let path = path.into_c_str()?;

fn _touch(path: &CStr) -> io::Result<()> {
    // implementation goes here

Users can then call touch("foo"), touch(cstr!("foo")), touch(Path::new("foo")), or many other things.

Required Methods

Returns a view of this string as a string slice.

Returns a potentially-lossy rendering of this string as a Cow<'_, str>.

Returns a view of this string as a maybe-owned CStr.

Consumes self and returns a view of this string as a maybe-owned CStr.

Runs a closure with self passed in as a &CStr.
