Detailed Description

Types and functions for filesystem operations.

Todo:

move zypp::filesystem stuff into separate header

Add tmpfile and tmpdir handling.

think about using Exceptions in zypp::filesystem

provide a readdir iterator; at least provide an interface using an insert_iterator to be independent from std::container.

◆ rename()

int zypp::filesystem::rename ( const Pathname oldpath,
const Pathname newpath 
)

Like 'rename'.

Renames a file, moving it between directories if required. It falls back to using mv(1) in case errno is set to EXDEV, indicating a cross-device rename, which is likely to happen when oldpath and newpath are not on the same OverlayFS layer.

Returns
0 on success, errno on failure

Definition at line 695 of file PathInfo.cc.

◆ exchange()

int zypp::filesystem::exchange ( const Pathname lpath,
const Pathname rpath

Exchanges two files or directories.

Most common use is when building a new config file (or dir) in a tempfile. After the job is done, configfile and tempfile are exchanged. This includes moving away the configfile in case the tempfile does not exist. Parent directories are created as needed.

Note
Paths are exchanged using rename, so take care both paths are located on the same filesystem.
Pathname configfile( "/etc/myconfig" );
TmpFile newconfig( TmpFile::makeSibling( configfile ) );
// now write the new config:
std::ofstream o( newconfig.path().c_str() );
o << "mew values << endl;
o.close();
// If everything is fine, exchange the files:
exchange( newconfig.path(), configfile );
// Now the old configfile is still available at newconfig.path()
// until newconfig goes out of scope.
Returns
0 on success, errno on failure

Definition at line 709 of file PathInfo.cc.

◆ copy()

int zypp::filesystem::copy ( const Pathname file,
const Pathname dest 
)

Returns
0 on success, errno on failure.

Definition at line 808 of file PathInfo.cc.

◆ hardlink()

Returns
Pathname of the file or directory pointed to by the given link if it is a valid link. If path_r is not a link, an exact copy of it is returned. If path_r is a broken or a cyclic link, an empty Pathname is returned and the event logged.

int zypp::filesystem::copy_file2dir ( const Pathname file,
const Pathname dest 
)
