std::filesystem::directory_options: std::filesystem::directory_options


std::filesystem::directory_options - std::filesystem::directory_options


Defined in header <filesystem>
enum class directory_options {
none = /* unspecified */,
follow_directory_symlink = /* unspecified */, (since C++17)
skip_permission_denied = /* unspecified */

This type represents available options that control the behavior of the directory_iterator and recursive_directory_iterator.
directory_options satisfies the requirements of BitmaskType (which means the bitwise operators operator&, operator|, operator^, operator~, operator&=, operator|=, and operator^= are defined for this type). none represents the empty bitmask; every other enumerator represents a distinct bitmask element.

Member constants

none (Default) Skip directory symlinks, permission denied is error.
