archive_write_free(3)    BSD Library Functions Manual    archive_write_free(3)


NAME

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


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 mal-
             formed 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.
