Expand description

Includes a UTF-8 encoded file as a string.

The file is located relative to the current file (similarly to how modules are found). The provided path is interpreted in a platform-specific way at compile time. So, for instance, an invocation with a Windows path containing backslashes \ would not compile correctly on Unix.

This macro will yield an expression of type &'static str which is the contents of the file.


Assume there are two files in the same directory with the following contents:

File ‘’:


File ‘’:

fn main() {
    let my_str = include_str!("");
    assert_eq!(my_str, "adiós\n");

Compiling ‘’ and running the resulting binary will print “adiós”.
