Expand description

Reads bytes from a source.

Implemented as an extension trait, adding utility methods to all AsyncRead types. Callers will tend to import this trait instead of AsyncRead.

use tokio::fs::File;
use tokio::io::{self, AsyncReadExt};

#[tokio::main]
async fn main() -> io::Result<()> {
    let mut f = File::open("foo.txt").await?;
    let mut buffer = [0; 10];

    // The `read` method is defined by this trait.
    let n = f.read(&mut buffer[..]).await?;

    Ok(())
}

See [module][crate::io] documentation for more details.

Provided Methods§

Creates a new AsyncRead instance that chains this stream with next.

The returned AsyncRead instance will first read all bytes from this object until EOF is encountered. Afterwards the output is equivalent to the output of next.

Examples

Files implement AsyncRead:

use tokio::fs::File;
use tokio::io::{self, AsyncReadExt};

#[tokio::main]
async fn main() -> io::Result<()> {
    let f1 = File::open("foo.txt").await?;
    let f2 = File::open("bar.txt").await?;

    let mut handle = f1.chain(f2);
    let mut buffer = String::new();

    // read the value into a String. We could use any AsyncRead
    // method here, this is just one example.
    handle.read_to_string(&mut buffer).await?;
    Ok(())
}

Pulls some bytes from this source into the specified buffer, returning how many bytes were read.

Equivalent to:

async fn read(&mut self, buf: &mut [u8]) -> io::Result<usize>;

This method does not provide any guarantees about whether it completes immediately or asynchronously.

Return

If the return value of this method is Ok(n), then it must be guaranteed that 0 <= n <= buf.len(). A nonzero n value indicates that the buffer buf has been filled in with n bytes of data from this source. If n is 0, then it can indicate one of two scenarios:

  1. This reader has reached its “end of file” and will likely no longer be able to produce bytes. Note that this does not mean that the reader will always no longer be able to produce bytes.
  2. The buffer specified was 0 bytes in length.

No guarantees are provided about the contents of buf when this function is called, implementations cannot rely on any property of the contents of buf being true. It is recommended that implementations only write data to buf instead of reading its contents.

Correspondingly, however, callers of this method may not assume any guarantees about how the implementation uses buf. It is possible that the code that’s supposed to write to the buffer might also read from it. It is your responsibility to make sure that buf is initialized before calling read.

Errors

If this function encounters any form of I/O or other error, an error variant will be returned. If an error is returned then it must be guaranteed that no bytes were read.

Cancel safety

This method is cancel safe. If you use it as the event in a tokio::select! statement and some other branch completes first, then it is guaranteed that no data was read.

Examples

Files implement Read:

use tokio::fs::File;
use tokio::io::{self, AsyncReadExt};

#[tokio::main]
async fn main() -> io::Result<()> {
    let mut f = File::open("foo.txt").await?;
    let mut buffer = [0; 10];

    // read up to 10 bytes
    let n = f.read(&mut buffer[..]).await?;

    println!("The bytes: {:?}", &buffer[..n]);
    Ok(())
}

Pulls some bytes from this source into the specified buffer, advancing the buffer’s internal cursor.

Equivalent to:

async fn read_buf<B: BufMut>(&mut self, buf: &mut B) -> io::Result<usize>;

Usually, only a single read syscall is issued, even if there is more space in the supplied buffer.

This method does not provide any guarantees about whether it completes immediately or asynchronously.

Return

A nonzero n value indicates that the buffer buf has been filled in with n bytes of data from this source. If n is 0, then it can indicate one of two scenarios:

  1. This reader has reached its “end of file” and will likely no longer be able to produce bytes. Note that this does not mean that the reader will always no longer be able to produce bytes.
  2. The buffer specified had a remaining capacity of zero.
Errors

If this function encounters any form of I/O or other error, an error variant will be returned. If an error is returned then it must be guaranteed that no bytes were read.

Cancel safety

This method is cancel safe. If you use it as the event in a tokio::select! statement and some other branch completes first, then it is guaranteed that no data was read.

Examples

File implements Read and BytesMut implements BufMut:

use tokio::fs::File;
use tokio::io::{self, AsyncReadExt};

use bytes::BytesMut;

#[tokio::main]
async fn main() -> io::Result<()> {
    let mut f = File::open("foo.txt").await?;
    let mut buffer = BytesMut::with_capacity(10);

    assert!(buffer.is_empty());

    // read up to 10 bytes, note that the return value is not needed
    // to access the data that was read as `buffer`'s internal
    // cursor is updated.
    f.read_buf(&mut buffer).await?;

    println!("The bytes: {:?}", &buffer[..]);
    Ok(())
}

Reads the exact number of bytes required to fill buf.

Equivalent to:

async fn read_exact(&mut self, buf: &mut [u8]) -> io::Result<usize>;

This function reads as many bytes as necessary to completely fill the specified buffer buf.

Errors

If the operation encounters an “end of file” before completely filling the buffer, it returns an error of the kind ErrorKind::UnexpectedEof. The contents of buf are unspecified in this case.

If any other read error is encountered then the operation immediately returns. The contents of buf are unspecified in this case.

If this operation returns an error, it is unspecified how many bytes it has read, but it will never read more than would be necessary to completely fill the buffer.

Cancel safety

This method is not cancellation safe. If the method is used as the event in a tokio::select! statement and some other branch completes first, then some data may already have been read into buf.

Examples

Files implement Read:

use tokio::fs::File;
use tokio::io::{self, AsyncReadExt};

#[tokio::main]
async fn main() -> io::Result<()> {
    let mut f = File::open("foo.txt").await?;
    let mut buffer = [0; 10];

    // read exactly 10 bytes
    f.read_exact(&mut buffer).await?;
    Ok(())
}

    Ok(())
}

Reads an 32-bit floating point type in little-endian order from the underlying reader.

Equivalent to:

async fn read_f32_le(&mut self) -> io::Result<f32>;

It is recommended to use a buffered reader to avoid excessive syscalls.

Errors

This method returns the same errors as AsyncReadExt::read_exact.

Examples

Read 32-bit floating point type from a AsyncRead:

use tokio::io::{self, AsyncReadExt};

use std::io::Cursor;

#[tokio::main]
async fn main() -> io::Result<()> {
    let mut reader = Cursor::new(vec![0xff, 0xff, 0x7f, 0xff]);

    assert_eq!(f32::MIN, reader.read_f32_le().await?);
    Ok(())
}

Reads an 64-bit floating point type in little-endian order from the underlying reader.

Equivalent to:

async fn read_f64_le(&mut self) -> io::Result<f64>;

It is recommended to use a buffered reader to avoid excessive syscalls.

Errors

This method returns the same errors as AsyncReadExt::read_exact.

Examples

Read 64-bit floating point type from a AsyncRead:

use tokio::io::{self, AsyncReadExt};

use std::io::Cursor;

#[tokio::main]
async fn main() -> io::Result<()> {
    let mut reader = Cursor::new(vec![
        0xff, 0xff, 0xff, 0xff, 0xff, 0xff, 0xef, 0xff
    ]);

    assert_eq!(f64::MIN, reader.read_f64_le().await?);
    Ok(())
}

Reads all bytes until EOF in this source, placing them into buf.

Equivalent to:

async fn read_to_end(&mut self, buf: &mut Vec<u8>) -> io::Result<usize>;

All bytes read from this source will be appended to the specified buffer buf. This function will continuously call read() to append more data to buf until read() returns Ok(0).

If successful, the total number of bytes read is returned.

Errors

If a read error is encountered then the read_to_end operation immediately completes. Any bytes which have already been read will be appended to buf.

Examples

Files implement Read:

use tokio::io::{self, AsyncReadExt};
use tokio::fs::File;

#[tokio::main]
async fn main() -> io::Result<()> {
    let mut f = File::open("foo.txt").await?;
    let mut buffer = Vec::new();

    // read the whole file
    f.read_to_end(&mut buffer).await?;
    Ok(())
}

(See also the tokio::fs::read convenience function for reading from a file.)

Reads all bytes until EOF in this source, appending them to buf.

Equivalent to:

async fn read_to_string(&mut self, buf: &mut String) -> io::Result<usize>;

If successful, the number of bytes which were read and appended to buf is returned.

Errors

If the data in this stream is not valid UTF-8 then an error is returned and buf is unchanged.

See read_to_end for other error semantics.

Examples

Files implement Read:

use tokio::io::{self, AsyncReadExt};
use tokio::fs::File;

#[tokio::main]
async fn main() -> io::Result<()> {
    let mut f = File::open("foo.txt").await?;
    let mut buffer = String::new();

    f.read_to_string(&mut buffer).await?;
    Ok(())
}

(See also the crate::fs::read_to_string convenience function for reading from a file.)

Creates an adaptor which reads at most limit bytes from it.

This function returns a new instance of AsyncRead which will read at most limit bytes, after which it will always return EOF (Ok(0)). Any read errors will not count towards the number of bytes read and future calls to read() may succeed.

Examples

Files implement Read:

use tokio::io::{self, AsyncReadExt};
use tokio::fs::File;

#[tokio::main]
async fn main() -> io::Result<()> {
    let f = File::open("foo.txt").await?;
    let mut buffer = [0; 5];

    // read at most five bytes
    let mut handle = f.take(5);

    handle.read(&mut buffer).await?;
    Ok(())
}
