type method

  1. @override
Future<FileSystemEntityType> type (String path, { bool followLinks: true })

Finds the type of file system object that a path points to. Returns a Future that completes with the result.

io.FileSystemEntityType.LINK will only be returned if followLinks is false, and path points to a link

If the path does not point to a file system object or an error occurs then io.FileSystemEntityType.NOT_FOUND is returned.


Future<io.FileSystemEntityType> type(String path, {bool followLinks: true}) =>
    io.FileSystemEntity.type(path, followLinks: followLinks);
