Since: Version 20200503-171512-b13ef15f

The functionality described in this section requires version 20200503-171512-b13ef15f of wezterm, or a more recent version.

This function returns an array containing the absolute file names of the directory specified. Due to limitations in the lua bindings, all of the paths must be able to be represented as UTF-8 or this function will generate an error.

local wezterm = require 'wezterm'

-- logs the names of all of the entries under `/etc`
for _, v in ipairs(wezterm.read_dir '/etc') do
  wezterm.log_error('entry: ' .. v)
