[][src]Function same_file::is_same_file

pub fn is_same_file<P, Q>(path1: P, path2: Q) -> Result<bool> where
    P: AsRef<Path>,
    Q: AsRef<Path>, 

Returns true if the two file paths may correspond to the same file.

Note that it's possible for this to produce a false positive on some platforms. Namely, this can return true even if the two file paths don't resolve to the same file.


This function will return an io::Error if any of the two paths cannot be opened. The most common reasons for this are: the path does not exist, or there were not enough permissions.


use same_file::is_same_file;

assert!(is_same_file("./foo", "././foo").unwrap_or(false));
