Function std::fs::create_dir

pub fn create_dir<P: AsRef<Path>>(path: P) -> Result<()>

Creates a new, empty directory at the provided path

Platform-specific behavior

This function currently corresponds to the mkdir function on Unix and the CreateDirectory function on Windows. Note that, this may change in the future.

Errors

This function will return an error in the following situations, but is not limited to just these cases:

  • User lacks permissions to create directory at path.
  • path already exists.

Examples

use std::fs;

fn main() -> std::io::Result<()> {
    fs::create_dir("/some/dir")?;
    Ok(())
}
