identicalSync static method

bool identicalSync(
  1. String path1,
  2. String path2

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

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.

Throws an error if one of the paths points to an object that does not exist.


static bool identicalSync(String path1, String path2) {
  IOOverrides? overrides = IOOverrides.current;
  if (overrides == null) {
    return _identicalSync(path1, path2);
  return overrides.fseIdenticalSync(path1, path2);
