ez_file

Easy file manipulation (read_file, write_file, etc.)
IN THIS PACKAGE
Module FileChannel
include FileSig.CONTENT_OPERATIONS with type in_file := in_channel and type out_file = out_channel
type out_file = out_channel

The type of a file to which we write: out_channel for FileChannel, string for FileString and FileGen.t for FileGen.

val read_file : in_channel -> string

read_file file returns the full content of file. If the file is opened, it is opened in binary mode, no conversion is applied.

val write_file : out_file -> string -> unit

write_file file content creates file file with content content. If the file is opened, it is opened in binary mode, no conversion is applied.

val read_subfile : in_channel -> int -> int -> string

read_subfile file pos len returns a string containing len bytes read from file file at pos pos. If the file is opened, it is opened in binary mode. Raises End_of_file if the file is too short.

val read_lines : in_channel -> string array

read_lines file returns the content of file as an array of lines. If the file is opened, it is opened in text mode.

val read_lines_to_list : in_channel -> string list

read_lines_to_list file returns the content of file as a list of lines. If the file is opened, it is opened in text mode.

val write_lines : out_file -> string array -> unit

write_lines file lines creates the file file from an array of lines, using FileChannel.output_line for each line.

val write_lines_of_list : out_file -> string list -> unit

write_lines file lines creates the file file from a list of lines, using FileChannel.output_line for each line.

val read_sublines : in_channel -> int -> int -> string array

read_sublines file pos len returns at most len lines of the file file, starting at line pos. It differs from read_subfile in that it will not raise any exception if the file is too short. Note that it reads the file from beginning everytimes.

val read_sublines_to_list : in_channel -> int -> int -> string list

Same as read_sublines, but returns a list of strings.

val iter_blocks : ( EzCompat.Bytes.t -> int -> unit ) -> in_channel -> unit

iter_blocks f file reads the content of file file, and calls f buffer len on each chunk. The buffer is reused, and only the first len bytes are from the file. Chunks have a maximal size of 32768.

val iter_lines : ( string -> unit ) -> in_channel -> unit

iter_lines f file calls f line on all the lines line of the file file.

val iteri_lines : ( int -> string -> unit ) -> in_channel -> unit

iteri_lines f file calls f line_num line on every line line of the file file, with line_num the line number, starting with line 0.

val copy_file : in_channel -> out_file -> unit

copy_file src dst copy all the content remaining in file src to file dst.

val output_line : out_channel -> string -> unit
