Openat (ct) Crate

Status: Beta

Documentation | Github | Crate

The interface to openat, symlinkat, and other functions in *at family.

About this Fork

This is a fork of the original 'openat' at https://github.com/tailhook/openat

The objective is to fix existing Issues and add features as required. An eventual goal would be to get this merged back into upstream. In most cases the API should stay backward compatible with the original openat (Unless functionality and fixes dictate changes).

It can be used as drop in replacement by aliasing the import:

use openat_ct as openat;

Dependent crates

This crate is a thin wrapper for the underlying system calls. You may find the extension methods in openat-ext useful.
