LIBRARY

Streaming Archive Library (libarchive, -larchive)

SYNOPSIS


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

DESCRIPTION

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 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;
archive_write_close
  Complete the archive and invoke the close callback.
archive_write_finish
  This is a deprecated synonym for archive_write_free.
archive_write_free
  Invokes archive_write_close if necessary, then releases all resources. If you need detailed information about archive_write_close failures, you should be careful to call it separately, as you cannot obtain error information after 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 archive_errno and archive_error_string functions.
