LIBRARY

Streaming Archive Library (libarchive, -larchive)  

SYNOPSIS

In archive.h Ft int Fn archive_write_fail struct archive * Ft int Fn archive_write_close struct archive * Ft int Fn archive_write_finish struct archive * Ft int Fn archive_write_free struct archive *  

DESCRIPTION

Fn archive_write_fail
Always returns ARCHIVE_FATAL This marks the archive object as being unusable; after calling this function, the only call that can succeed is Fn archive_write_free to release the resources. This can be used to speed recovery when the archive creation must be aborted. Note that the created archive is likely to be malformed in this case;
Fn archive_write_close
Complete the archive and invoke the close callback.
Fn archive_write_finish
This is a deprecated synonym for Fn archive_write_free .
Fn archive_write_free
Invokes Fn archive_write_close if necessary, then releases all resources. If you need detailed information about Fn archive_write_close failures, you should be careful to call it separately, as you cannot obtain error information after Fn archive_write_free returns.

 

RETURN VALUES

These functions return ARCHIVE_OK on success, or ARCHIVE_FATAL  

ERRORS

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