std::experimental::filesystem::is_other - std::experimental::filesystem::is_other


Defined in header <experimental/filesystem>
bool is_other( file_status s ); (1) (filesystem TS)
bool is_other( const path& p ); (2) (filesystem TS)
bool is_other( const path& p, error_code& ec ); (3) (filesystem TS)

Checks if the given file status or path corresponds to a file of type other type. That is, the file exists, but is neither regular file, nor directory nor a symlink.
1) Equivalent to exists(s) && !is_regular_file(s) && !is_directory(s) && !is_symlink(s).
2) Equivalent to is_other(status(p)).
3) Equivalent to is_other(status(p, ec)). Returns false and sets ec to an appropriate error code if an error occurs. Otherwise, ec is cleared with a call to ec.clear().


s - file status to check
p - path to examine
ec - error code to store the error status to

Return value

true if the given path or file status corresponds to a other file, false otherwise.


noexcept specification:
2) Throws filesystem_error if an error occurs. The error is constructed with p as an argument. The error code is set to an appropriate error code for the error that caused the failure.
