Instance Property

serializedRepresentation

The contents of the file wrapper as an opaque data object.

Declaration

var serializedRepresentation: Data? { get }

Discussion

This property contains a data object in the format used by the fileContents pasteboard type. This data object is also suitable for passing to init(serializedRepresentation:).

This property may be nil if the user modifies the contents of the file system node after you call read(from:options:) or init(url:options:), but before FileWrapper has read the contents of the file. You can use the immediate reading option to reduce the likelihood of this problem.
