Module std::os::unix

This is supported on Unix only.

Platform-specific extensions to std for Unix platforms.

Provides access to platform-level information on Unix platforms, and exposes Unix-specific functions that would otherwise be inappropriate as part of the core std library.

It exposes more ways to deal with platform-specific strings (OsStr, OsString), allows to set permissions more granularly, extract low-level file descriptors from files and sockets, and has platform-specific helpers for spawning processes.


use std::fs::File;
use std::os::unix::prelude::*;

fn main() {
    let f = File::create("foo.txt").unwrap();
    let fd = f.as_raw_fd();

    // use fd with native unix bindings
