same-file

A safe and cross platform crate to determine whether two files or directories are the same.

Build status

Dual-licensed under MIT or the UNLICENSE.

Documentation

https://docs.rs/same-file

Usage

Add this to your Cargo.toml:

[dependencies]
same-file = "1"

Example

The simplest use of this crate is to use the is_same_file function, which takes two file paths and returns true if and only if they refer to the same file:

use same_file::is_same_file;

fn main() {
    assert!(is_same_file("/bin/sh", "/usr/bin/sh").unwrap());
}

Minimum Rust version policy

This crate's minimum supported rustc version is 1.34.0.

The current policy is that the minimum Rust version required to use this crate can be increased in minor version updates. For example, if crate 1.0 requires Rust 1.20.0, then crate 1.0.z for all values of z will also require Rust 1.20.0 or newer. However, crate 1.y for y > 0 may require a newer minimum version of Rust.

In general, this crate will be conservative with respect to the minimum supported version of Rust.
