DESCRIPTION
     archive_read_support_format_7zip(), archive_read_support_format_ar(),
             archive_read_support_format_cab(),
             archive_read_support_format_cpio(),
             archive_read_support_format_iso9660(),
             archive_read_support_format_lha(),
             archive_read_support_format_mtree(),
             archive_read_support_format_rar(),
             archive_read_support_format_raw(),
             archive_read_support_format_tar(),
             archive_read_support_format_xar(),
             archive_read_support_format_zip()
             Enables support---including auto-detection code---for the
             specified archive format.  For example,
             archive_read_support_format_tar() enables support for a variety
             of standard tar formats, old-style tar, ustar, pax interchange
             format, and many common variants.
     archive_read_support_format_all()
             Enables support for all available formats except the "raw" format
             (see below).
     archive_read_support_format_by_code()
             Enables a single format specified by the format code.  This can
             be useful when reading a single archive twice; use
             archive_format() after reading the first time and pass the
             resulting code to this function to selectively enable only the
             necessary format support.  Note:  In statically-linked
             executables, this will cause your program to include support for
             every format.  If executable size is a concern, you may wish to
             avoid using this function.
     archive_read_support_format_empty()
             Enables support for treating empty files as empty archives.
             Because empty files are valid for several different formats, it
             is not possible to accurately determine a format for an empty
             file based purely on contents.  So empty files are treated by
             libarchive as a distinct format.
     archive_read_support_format_raw()
             The "raw" format handler allows libarchive to be used to read
             arbitrary data.  It treats any data stream as an archive with a
             single entry.  The pathname of this entry is "data"; all other
             entry fields are unset.  This is not enabled by
             archive_read_support_format_all() in order to avoid erroneous
             handling of damaged archives.

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.

     archive_read_set_options(3), archive_util(3), tar(5)

BUGS
     Many traditional archiver programs treat empty files as valid empty
     archives.  For example, many implementations of tar(1) allow you to
     append entries to an empty file.  Of course, it is impossible to
     determine the format of an empty file by inspecting the contents, so this
     library treats empty files as having a special "empty" format.

     Using the "raw" handler together with any other handler will often work
     but can produce surprising results.
