# Struct iovec::IoVec
[−]
[src]

pub struct IoVec { /* fields omitted */ }

A specialized byte slice type for performing vectored I/O operations.

On all systems, the types needed to peform vectored I/O systems have the
same size as Rust's [slice]. However, the layout is not necessarily the
same. `IoVec`

provides a portable compatibility layer.

The `IoVec`

behaves like like a Rust [slice], providing the same functions.
It also provides conversion functions to and from the OS specific vectored
types.

# Examples

use iovec::IoVec; let mut data = vec![]; data.extend_from_slice(b"hello"); let iovec: &IoVec = data.as_slice().into(); assert_eq!(&iovec[..], &b"hello"[..]);

# Panics

Attempting to convert a slice longer than `MAX_LENGTH`

to an `IoVec`

will
result in a panic.

1.0.0

Returns a raw pointer to the slice's buffer.

The caller must ensure that the slice outlives the pointer this function returns, or else it will end up pointing to garbage.

Modifying the container referenced by this slice may cause its buffer to be reallocated, which would also make any pointers to it invalid.

# Examples

Returns an unsafe mutable pointer to the slice's buffer.

The caller must ensure that the slice outlives the pointer this function returns, or else it will end up pointing to garbage.

Modifying the container referenced by this slice may cause its buffer to be reallocated, which would also make any pointers to it invalid.

# Examples

If the first element is matched, an empty slice will be the first item returned by the iterator. Similarly, if the last element in the slice is matched, an empty slice will be the last item returned by the iterator:

let slice = [10, 40, 33]; let mut iter = slice.split(|num| num % 3 == 0); assert_eq!(iter.next().unwrap(), &[10, 40]); assert_eq!(iter.next().unwrap(), &[]); assert!(iter.next().is_none());

As with `split()`

, if the first or last element is matched, an empty
slice will be the first (or last) item returned by the iterator.

#![feature(slice_rsplit)] let v = &[0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8]; let mut it = v.rsplit(|n| *n % 2 == 0); assert_eq!(it.next().unwrap(), &[]); assert_eq!(it.next().unwrap(), &[3, 5]); assert_eq!(it.next().unwrap(), &[1, 1]); assert_eq!(it.next().unwrap(), &[]); assert_eq!(it.next(), None);

`fn sort(&mut self) where`

T: Ord,

1.0.0

T: Ord,

Sorts the slice.

This sort is stable (i.e. does not reorder equal elements) and `O(n log n)`

worst-case.

# Current implementation

The current algorithm is an adaptive, iterative merge sort inspired by timsort. It is designed to be very fast in cases where the slice is nearly sorted, or consists of two or more sorted sequences concatenated one after another.

Also, it allocates temporary storage half the size of `self`

, but for short slices a
non-allocating insertion sort is used instead.

# Examples

let mut v = [-5, 4, 1, -3, 2]; v.sort(); assert!(v == [-5, -3, 1, 2, 4]);

non-allocating insertion sort is used instead.

# Examples

let mut v = [5, 4, 1, 3, 2]; v.sort_by(|a, b| a.cmp(b)); assert!(v == [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]); // reverse sorting v.sort_by(|a, b| b.cmp(a)); assert!(v == [5, 4, 3, 2, 1]);

1.7.0

B: Ord,

F: FnMut(&T) -> B,

Sorts the slice with a key extraction function.

This sort is stable (i.e. does not reorder equal elements) and `O(n log n)`

worst-case.

# Current implementation

The current algorithm is an adaptive, iterative merge sort inspired by timsort. It is designed to be very fast in cases where the slice is nearly sorted, or consists of two or more sorted sequences concatenated one after another.

Also, it allocates temporary storage half the size of `self`

, but for short slices a
non-allocating insertion sort is used instead.

# Examples

let mut v = [-5i32, 4, 1, -3, 2]; v.sort_by_key(|k| k.abs()); assert!(v == [1, 2, -3, 4, -5]);

`fn sort_unstable(&mut self) where`

T: Ord,

T: Ord,

`sort_unstable`

)Sorts the slice, but may not preserve the order of equal elements.

This sort is unstable (i.e. may reorder equal elements), in-place (i.e. does not allocate),
and `O(n log n)`

worst-case.

# Current implementation

The current algorithm is based on Orson Peters' pattern-defeating quicksort, which is a quicksort variant designed to be very fast on certain kinds of patterns, sometimes achieving linear time. It is randomized but deterministic, and falls back to heapsort on degenerate inputs.

It is generally faster than stable sorting, except in a few special cases, e.g. when the slice consists of several concatenated sorted sequences.

# Examples

#![feature(sort_unstable)] let mut v = [-5, 4, 1, -3, 2]; v.sort_unstable(); assert!(v == [-5, -3, 1, 2, 4]);

This sort is unstable (i.e. may reorder equal elements), in-place (i.e. does not allocate),

`fn clone_from_slice(&mut self, src: &[T]) where`

T: Clone,

1.7.0

T: Clone,

Copies the elements from `src`

into `self`

.

The length of `src`

must be the same as `self`

.

If `src`

implements `Copy`

, it can be more performant to use
`copy_from_slice`

.

# Panics

This function will panic if the two slices have different lengths.

# Example

let mut dst = [0, 0, 0]; let src = [1, 2, 3]; dst.clone_from_slice(&src); assert!(dst == [1, 2, 3]);

`fn copy_from_slice(&mut self, src: &[T]) where`

T: Copy,

1.9.0

T: Copy,

Copies all elements from `src`

into `self`

, using a memcpy.

The length of `src`

must be the same as `self`

.

If `src`

does not implement `Copy`

, use `clone_from_slice`

.

# Panics

This function will panic if the two slices have different lengths.

# Example

let mut dst = [0, 0, 0]; let src = [1, 2, 3]; dst.copy_from_slice(&src); assert_eq!(src, dst);

`fn to_vec(&self) -> Vec<T> where`

T: Clone,

1.0.0

T: Clone,

Copies `self`

into a new `Vec`

.

# Examples

let s = [10, 40, 30]; let x = s.to_vec(); // Here, `s` and `x` can be modified independently.

`fn into_vec(self: Box<[T]>) -> Vec<T>`

1.0.0

Converts `self`

into a vector without clones or allocation.

The resulting vector can be converted back into a box via
`Vec<T>`

's `into_boxed_slice`

method.

# Examples

let s: Box<[i32]> = Box::new([10, 40, 30]); let x = s.into_vec(); // `s` cannot be used anymore because it has been converted into `x`. assert_eq!(x, vec![10, 40, 30]);
