archive_read_free(3)     BSD Library Functions Manual     archive_read_free(3)


NAME

     archive_read_close, archive_read_finish, archive_read_free -- functions
     for reading streaming archives


LIBRARY

     Streaming Archive Library (libarchive, -larchive)


SYNOPSIS

     #include <archive.h>

     int
     archive_read_close(struct archive *);

     int
     archive_read_finish(struct archive *);

     int
     archive_read_free(struct archive *);


DESCRIPTION

     archive_read_close()
             Complete the archive and invoke the close callback.
     archive_read_finish()
             This is a deprecated synonym for archive_read_free().  The new
             name was introduced with libarchive 3.0.  Applications that need
             to compile with either libarchive 2 or libarchive 3 should con-
             tinue to use the archive_read_finish() name.  Both names will be
             supported until libarchive 4.0 is released, which is not expected
             to occur earlier than 2013.
     archive_read_free()
             Invokes archive_read_close() if it was not invoked manually, then
             release all resources.  Note: In libarchive 1.x, this function
             was declared to return void, which made it impossible to detect
             certain errors when archive_read_close() was invoked implicitly
             from this function.  The declaration is corrected beginning with
             libarchive 2.0.


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.
