ARCHIVE_WRITE_FREE(3)      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
             malformed 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.
