stat method Null safety

Future<FileStat> stat()

Calls the operating system's stat() function on path.

Identical to FileStat.stat(this.path).

Returns a Future<FileStat> object containing the data returned by stat().

If path is a symbolic link then it is resolved and results for the resulting file are returned.

If the call fails, completes the future with a FileStat object with .type set to FileSystemEntityType.notFound and the other fields invalid.


Future<FileStat> stat() => FileStat.stat(path);
