DESCRIPTION

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

The library can write a variety of common archive formats.
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 archive_format() to create a new archive with the same format as an existing archive.
archive_write_set_format_by_name()
  Sets the corresponding format based on the common name.
archive_write_set_format_filter_by_ext(), 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
archive_write_set_format_7zip() archive_write_set_format_ar_bsd(), archive_write_set_format_ar_svr4(), archive_write_set_format_cpio() archive_write_set_format_cpio_newc() archive_write_set_format_gnutar() archive_write_set_format_iso9660() archive_write_set_format_mtree() archive_write_set_format_mtree_classic() archive_write_set_format_pax() archive_write_set_format_pax_restricted() archive_write_set_format_raw() archive_write_set_format_shar() archive_write_set_format_shar_dump() archive_write_set_format_ustar() archive_write_set_format_v7tar() archive_write_set_format_warc() archive_write_set_format_xar() archive_write_set_format_zip() Set the format as specified. More details on the formats supported by libarchive can be found in the libarchive-formats(5) manual page.

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.
