ARCHIVE_ENTRY(3)		   BSD Library Functions Manual 		 ARCHIVE_ENTRY(3)

     archive_entry_clear, archive_entry_clone, archive_entry_free, archive_entry_new, -- func-
     tions for managing archive entry descriptions

     Streaming Archive Library (libarchive, -larchive)

     #include <archive_entry.h>

     struct archive_entry *
     archive_entry_clear(struct archive_entry *);

     struct archive_entry *
     archive_entry_clone(struct archive_entry *);

     archive_entry_free(struct archive_entry *);

     struct archive_entry *

     These functions create and manipulate data objects that represent entries within an archive.
     You can think of a struct archive_entry as a heavy-duty version of struct stat: it includes
     everything from struct stat plus associated pathname, textual group and user names, etc.
     These objects are used by libarchive(3) to represent the metadata associated with a particu-
     lar entry in an archive.

   Create and Destroy
     There are functions to allocate, destroy, clear, and copy archive_entry objects:
	     Erases the object, resetting all internal fields to the same state as a newly-cre-
	     ated object.  This is provided to allow you to quickly recycle objects without
	     thrashing the heap.
	     A deep copy operation; all text fields are duplicated.
	     Releases the struct archive_entry object.
	     Allocate and return a blank struct archive_entry object.

   Function groups
     Due to high number of functions, the accessor functions can be found in man pages grouped by
     the purpose.

     archive_entry_acl(3)    Access Control List manipulation

     archive_entry_paths(3)  Path name manipulation

     archive_entry_perms(3)  User, group and mode manipulation

     archive_entry_stat(3)   Functions not in the other groups and copying to/from struct stat.

     archive_entry_time(3)   Time field manipulation

     Most of the functions set or read entries in an object.  Such functions have one of the fol-
     lowing forms:
	     Stores the provided data in the object.  In particular, for strings, the pointer is
	     stored, not the referenced string.
	     As above, except that the referenced data is copied into the object.
	     Returns the specified data.  In the case of strings, a const-qualified pointer to
	     the string is returned.
     String data can be set or accessed as wide character strings or normal char strings.  The
     functions that use wide character strings are suffixed with _w.  Note that these are differ-
     ent representations of the same data: For example, if you store a narrow string and read the
     corresponding wide string, the object will transparently convert formats using the current
     locale.  Similarly, if you store a wide string and then store a narrow string for the same
     data, the previously-set wide string will be discarded in favor of the new data.

     archive(3), archive_entry_acl(3), archive_entry_paths(3), archive_entry_perms(3),

     The libarchive library first appeared in FreeBSD 5.3.

     The libarchive library was written by Tim Kientzle <kientzle@acm.org>.
