Initializer

init(fileURLWithFileSystemRepresentation:isDirectory:relativeTo:)

Initializes a URL object with a C string representing a local file system path.

Declaration

init(fileURLWithFileSystemRepresentation path: UnsafePointer<Int8>, isDirectory isDir: Bool, relativeTo baseURL: URL?)

Parameters

path

A null-terminated C string in file system representation containing the path to represent as a URL. If this path is a relative path, it is treated as being relative to the current working directory.

isDir

true if the last path part is a directory, otherwise false.

baseURL

The base URL for the new URL object. This must be a file URL. If path is absolute, this URL is ignored.
