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.
