archive_read_header(3)   BSD Library Functions Manual   archive_read_header(3)


NAME

     archive_read_next_header, archive_read_next_header2 -- functions for
     reading streaming archives


LIBRARY

     Streaming Archive Library (libarchive, -larchive)


SYNOPSIS

     #include <archive.h>

     int
     archive_read_next_header(struct archive *, struct archive_entry **);

     int
     archive_read_next_header2(struct archive *, struct archive_entry *);


DESCRIPTION

     archive_read_next_header()
             Read the header for the next entry and return a pointer to a
             struct archive_entry.  This is a convenience wrapper around
             archive_read_next_header2() that reuses an internal struct
             archive_entry object for each request.
     archive_read_next_header2()
             Read the header for the next entry and populate the provided
             struct archive_entry.


RETURN VALUES

     These functions return ARCHIVE_OK (the operation succeeded), ARCHIVE_WARN
     (the operation succeeded but a non-critical error was encountered),
     ARCHIVE_EOF (end-of-archive was encountered), ARCHIVE_RETRY (the opera-
     tion failed but can be retried), and ARCHIVE_FATAL (there was a fatal
     error; the archive should be closed immediately).


ERRORS

     Detailed error codes and textual descriptions are available from the
     archive_errno() and archive_error_string() functions.
