Manual Pages  — ARCHIVE_WRITE_FREE

NAME

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

CONTENTS

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.
