ARCHIVE_WRITE_FREE


NAME

archive_write_fail, archive_write_close, archive_write_finish, archive_write_free - functions for creating archives

LIBRARY

Streaming Archive Library (libarchive, -larchive)

SYNOPSIS

#include <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.
