Properties

absolute Link
Returns a Link instance whose path is the absolute path to this. [...]
read-only, override
hashCode int
The hash code for this object. [...]
read-only, inherited
isAbsolute bool
Returns a bool indicating whether this object's path is absolute. [...]

Methods

create(String target, { bool recursive: false }) Future<Link>
Creates a symbolic link. Returns a Future<Link> that completes with the link when it has been created. If the link exists, the future will complete with an error. [...]
createSync(String target, { bool recursive: false }) → void
Synchronously create the link. Calling createSync on an existing link will throw an exception. [...]
rename(String newPath) Future<Link>
Renames this link. Returns a Future<Link> that completes with a Link instance for the renamed link. [...]
override
renameSync(String newPath) Link
Synchronously renames this link. Returns a Link instance for the renamed link. [...]
override
Resolves the path of a file system object relative to the current working directory. [...]
override
resolveSymbolicLinksSync() String
Resolves the path of a file system object relative to the current working directory. [...]
override
target() Future<String>
Gets the target of the link. Returns a future that completes with the path to the target. [...]
targetSync() String
Synchronously gets the target of the link. Returns the path to the target. [...]
update(String target) Future<Link>
Updates the link. Returns a Future<Link> that completes with the link when it has been updated. Calling update on a non-existing link will complete its returned future with an exception.
updateSync(String target) → void
Synchronously updates the link. Calling updateSync on a non-existing link will throw an exception.
delete({bool recursive: false }) Future<FileSystemEntity>
Deletes this FileSystemEntity. [...]
inherited
deleteSync({bool recursive: false }) → void
Synchronously deletes this FileSystemEntity. [...]
inherited
exists() Future<bool>
Checks whether the file system entity with this path exists. Returns a Future<bool> that completes with the result. [...]
inherited
existsSync() bool
Synchronously checks whether the file system entity with this path exists. [...]
inherited
noSuchMethod(Invocation invocation) → dynamic
Invoked when a non-existent method or property is accessed. [...]
inherited
stat() Future<FileStat>
Calls the operating system's stat() function on the path of this FileSystemEntity. [...]
inherited
statSync() FileStat
Synchronously calls the operating system's stat() function on the path of this FileSystemEntity. [...]
inherited
toString() String
Returns a string representation of this object.
inherited
watch({int events: FileSystemEvent.all, bool recursive: false }) Stream<FileSystemEvent>
Start watching the FileSystemEntity for changes. [...]
inherited

Operators

operator ==(dynamic other) bool
The equality operator. [...]
