DESCRIPTION

These functions set the format that will be used for the archive.

The library can write a variety of common archive formats.

Fn archive_write_set_format
Sets the format based on the format code (see archive.h for the full list of format codes). In particular, this can be used in conjunction with Fn archive_format to create a new archive with the same format as an existing archive.
Fn archive_write_set_format_by_name
Sets the corresponding format based on the common name.
Fn archive_write_set_format_filter_by_ext , Fn archive_write_set_format_filter_by_ext_def
Sets both filters and format based on the output filename. Supported extensions: .7z, .zip, .jar, .cpio, .iso, .a, .ar, .tar, .tgz, .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, .tar.xz
Fn archive_write_set_format_7zip Fn archive_write_set_format_ar_bsd , Fn archive_write_set_format_ar_svr4 , Fn archive_write_set_format_cpio Fn archive_write_set_format_cpio_newc Fn archive_write_set_format_gnutar Fn archive_write_set_format_iso9660 Fn archive_write_set_format_mtree Fn archive_write_set_format_mtree_classic Fn archive_write_set_format_pax Fn archive_write_set_format_pax_restricted Fn archive_write_set_format_raw Fn archive_write_set_format_shar Fn archive_write_set_format_shar_dump Fn archive_write_set_format_ustar Fn archive_write_set_format_v7tar Fn archive_write_set_format_warc Fn archive_write_set_format_xar Fn archive_write_set_format_zip
Set the format as specified. More details on the formats supported by libarchive can be found in the libarchive-formats5 manual page.
