drop-dir

A very simple crate for creating RAII directories.

Example

use std::path::PathBuf;
use drop_dir::DropDir;
use std::fs::File;

let drop_dir = DropDir::new(PathBuf::from("/tmp/some/path")).unwrap();
let mut file = File::create(drop_dir.path().join("file.txt")).unwrap();
// drop_dir deleted when it goes out of scope.

Limitation

In the example above, only the last component of the drop_dir is removed. That is, the dir /tmp/some/temp/path is deleted, but /tmp/some/temp remains. Any other behavior would get complicated.

No runtime deps
