NAME

archive_write_finish_entry - functions for creating archives  

LIBRARY

Streaming Archive Library (libarchive, -larchive)  

SYNOPSIS

In archive.h Ft int Fn archive_write_finish_entry struct archive *  

DESCRIPTION

Close out the entry just written. In particular, this writes out the final padding required by some formats. Ordinarily, clients never need to call this, as it is called automatically by Fn archive_write_header and Fn archive_write_close as needed. For archive_write_disk handles, this flushes pending file attribute changes like modification time.  

RETURN VALUES

This function returns ARCHIVE_OK on success, or one of several non-zero error codes for errors. Specific error codes include: ARCHIVE_RETRY for operations that might succeed if retried, ARCHIVE_WARN for unusual conditions that do not prevent further operations, and ARCHIVE_FATAL for serious errors that make remaining operations impossible.  

ERRORS

Detailed error codes and textual descriptions are available from the Fn archive_errno and Fn archive_error_string functions.
