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.  Sup-
             ported extensions: .7z, .zip, .jar, .cpio, .iso, .a, .ar, .tar,
             .tgz, .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, .tar.xz

             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 sup-
             ported by libarchive can be found in the libarchive-formats(5)
             manual page.
