Expand description

Windows path prefixes, e.g., C: or \\server\share.

Windows uses a variety of path prefix styles, including references to drive volumes (like C:), network shared folders (like \\server\share), and others. In addition, some path prefixes are “verbatim” (i.e., prefixed with \\?\), in which case / is not treated as a separator and essentially no normalization is performed.

Examples

use std::path::{Component, Path, Prefix};
use std::path::Prefix::*;
use std::ffi::OsStr;

fn get_path_prefix(s: &str) -> Prefix {
    let path = Path::new(s);
    match path.components().next().unwrap() {
        Component::Prefix(prefix_component) => prefix_component.kind(),
        _ => panic!(),
    }
}

assert_eq!(Verbatim(OsStr::new("pictures")),
           get_path_prefix(r"\\?\pictures\kittens"));
assert_eq!(VerbatimUNC(OsStr::new("server"), OsStr::new("share")),
           get_path_prefix(r"\\?\UNC\server\share"));
assert_eq!(VerbatimDisk(b'C'), get_path_prefix(r"\\?\c:\"));
assert_eq!(DeviceNS(OsStr::new("BrainInterface")),
           get_path_prefix(r"\\.\BrainInterface"));
assert_eq!(UNC(OsStr::new("server"), OsStr::new("share")),
           get_path_prefix(r"\\server\share"));
assert_eq!(Disk(b'C'), get_path_prefix(r"C:\Users\Rust\Pictures\Ferris"));

Variants

Verbatim(&'a OsStr)

Verbatim prefix, e.g., \\?\cat_pics.

Verbatim prefixes consist of \\?\ immediately followed by the given component.

VerbatimUNC(&'a OsStr, &'a OsStr)

Verbatim prefix using Windows’ Uniform Naming Convention, e.g., \\?\UNC\server\share.

Verbatim UNC prefixes consist of \\?\UNC\ immediately followed by the server’s hostname and a share name.

VerbatimDisk(u8)

Verbatim disk prefix, e.g., \\?\C:.

Verbatim disk prefixes consist of \\?\ immediately followed by the drive letter and :.

DeviceNS(&'a OsStr)

Device namespace prefix, e.g., \\.\COM42.

Device namespace prefixes consist of \\.\ immediately followed by the device name.

UNC(&'a OsStr, &'a OsStr)

Prefix using Windows’ Uniform Naming Convention, e.g. \\server\share.

UNC prefixes consist of the server’s hostname and a share name.

Disk(u8)

Prefix C: for the given disk drive.

Implementations

Determines if the prefix is verbatim, i.e., begins with \\?\.

Examples

use std::path::Prefix::*;
use std::ffi::OsStr;

assert!(Verbatim(OsStr::new("pictures")).is_verbatim());
assert!(VerbatimUNC(OsStr::new("server"), OsStr::new("share")).is_verbatim());
assert!(VerbatimDisk(b'C').is_verbatim());
assert!(!DeviceNS(OsStr::new("BrainInterface")).is_verbatim());
assert!(!UNC(OsStr::new("server"), OsStr::new("share")).is_verbatim());
assert!(!Disk(b'C').is_verbatim());
