VirtualFile

from panda3d.core import VirtualFile
class VirtualFile

Bases: TypedReferenceCount

The abstract base class for a file or directory within the VirtualFileSystem.

Inheritance diagram of VirtualFile

closeReadFile(stream: istream)None

Closes a file opened by a previous call to openReadFile(). This really just deletes the istream pointer, but it is recommended to use this interface instead of deleting it explicitly, to help work around compiler issues.

closeReadWriteFile(stream: iostream)None

Closes a file opened by a previous call to openReadWriteFile(). This really just deletes the iostream pointer, but it is recommended to use this interface instead of deleting it explicitly, to help work around compiler issues.

closeWriteFile(stream: ostream)None

Closes a file opened by a previous call to openWriteFile(). This really just deletes the ostream pointer, but it is recommended to use this interface instead of deleting it explicitly, to help work around compiler issues.

copyFile(new_file: VirtualFile)bool

Attempts to copy the contents of this file to the indicated file. Returns true on success, false on failure.

deleteFile()bool

Attempts to delete this file or directory. This can remove a single file or an empty directory. It will not remove a nonempty directory. Returns true on success, false on failure.

static getClassType()TypeHandle
getFileSize()int

Returns the current size on disk (or wherever it is) of the file before it has been opened.

getFileSize(stream: istream)int

Returns the current size on disk (or wherever it is) of the already-open file. Pass in the stream that was returned by openReadFile(); some implementations may require this stream to determine the size.

getFileSystem()VirtualFileSystem
getFilename()Filename
getOriginalFilename()Filename

Returns the original filename as it was used to locate this VirtualFile. This is usually, but not always, the same string returned by getFilename().

getSystemInfo(info: SubfileInfo)bool

Populates the SubfileInfo structure with the data representing where the file actually resides on disk, if this is knowable. Returns true if the file might reside on disk, and the info is populated, or false if it does not (or it is not known where the file resides), in which case the info is meaningless.

getTimestamp()int

Returns a time_t value that represents the time the file was last modified, to within whatever precision the operating system records this information (on a Windows95 system, for instance, this may only be accurate to within 2 seconds).

If the timestamp cannot be determined, either because it is not supported by the operating system or because there is some error (such as file not found), returns 0.

hasFile()bool

Returns true if this file exists, false otherwise.

isDirectory()bool

Returns true if this file represents a directory (and scanDirectory() may be called), false otherwise.

isRegularFile()bool

Returns true if this file represents a regular file (and readFile() may be called), false otherwise.

isWritable()bool

Returns true if this file may be written to, which implies writeFile() may be called (unless it is a directory instead of a regular file).

ls(out: ostream)None

If the file represents a directory, lists its contents.

lsAll(out: ostream)None

If the file represents a directory, recursively lists its contents and those of all subdirectories.

openAppendFile()ostream

Works like openWriteFile(), but the file is opened in append mode. Like openWriteFile(), the returned pointer should eventually be passed to closeWriteFile().

openReadAppendFile()iostream

Works like openReadWriteFile(), but the file is opened in append mode. Like openReadWriteFile(), the returned pointer should eventually be passed to closeReadWriteFile().

openReadFile(auto_unwrap: bool)istream

Opens the file for reading. Returns a newly allocated istream on success (which you should eventually delete when you are done reading). Returns NULL on failure.

openReadWriteFile(truncate: bool)iostream

Opens the file for writing. Returns a newly allocated iostream on success (which you should eventually delete when you are done writing). Returns NULL on failure.

openWriteFile(auto_wrap: bool, truncate: bool)ostream

Opens the file for writing. Returns a newly allocated ostream on success (which you should eventually delete when you are done writing). Returns NULL on failure.

output(out: ostream)None
readFile(auto_unwrap: bool)object

Returns the entire contents of the file as a string.

renameFile(new_file: VirtualFile)bool

Attempts to move or rename this file or directory. If the original file is an ordinary file, it will quietly replace any already-existing file in the new filename (but not a directory). If the original file is a directory, the new filename must not already exist.

If the file is a directory, the new filename must be within the same mount point. If the file is an ordinary file, the new filename may be anywhere; but if it is not within the same mount point then the rename operation is automatically performed as a two-step copy-and-delete operation.

scanDirectory()VirtualFileList

If the file represents a directory (that is, isDirectory() returns true), this returns the list of files within the directory at the current time. Returns NULL if the file is not a directory or if the directory cannot be read.

wasReadSuccessful()bool

Call this method after a reading the istream returned by openReadFile() to completion. If it returns true, the file was read completely and without error; if it returns false, there may have been some errors or a truncated file read. This is particularly likely if the stream is a VirtualFileHTTP.

writeFile(data: object, auto_wrap: bool)object
