identical method

Future<bool> identical (String path1, String path2)

Checks whether two paths refer to the same object in the file system.

Returns a Future<bool> that completes with the result.

Comparing a link to its target returns false, as does comparing two links that point to the same target. To check the target of a link, use explicitly to fetch it. Directory links appearing inside a path are followed, though, to find the file system object.

Completes the returned Future with an error if one of the paths points to an object that does not exist.
