ARCHIVE_WRITE_BLOCKSIZE(3)	   BSD Library Functions Manual        ARCHIVE_WRITE_BLOCKSIZE(3)

NAME
     archive_write_get_bytes_per_block, archive_write_set_bytes_per_block,
     archive_write_get_bytes_in_last_block, archive_write_set_bytes_in_last_block -- functions
     for creating archives

LIBRARY
     Streaming Archive Library (libarchive, -larchive)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <archive.h>

     int
     archive_write_get_bytes_per_block(struct archive *);

     int
     archive_write_set_bytes_per_block(struct archive *, int bytes_per_block);

     int
     archive_write_get_bytes_in_last_block(struct archive *);

     int
     archive_write_set_bytes_in_last_block(struct archive *, int);

DESCRIPTION
     archive_write_set_bytes_per_block()
	     Sets the block size used for writing the archive data.  Every call to the write
	     callback function, except possibly the last one, will use this value for the length.
	     The default is to use a block size of 10240 bytes.  Note that a block size of zero
	     will suppress internal blocking and cause writes to be sent directly to the write
	     callback as they occur.

     archive_write_get_bytes_per_block()
	     Retrieve the block size to be used for writing.  A value of -1 here indicates that
	     the library should use default values.  A value of zero indicates that internal
	     blocking is suppressed.

     archive_write_set_bytes_in_last_block()
	     Sets the block size used for writing the last block.  If this value is zero, the
	     last block will be padded to the same size as the other blocks.  Otherwise, the
	     final block will be padded to a multiple of this size.  In particular, setting it to
	     1 will cause the final block to not be padded.  For compressed output, any padding
	     generated by this option is applied only after the compression.  The uncompressed
	     data is always unpadded.  The default is to pad the last block to the full block
	     size (note that archive_write_open_filename() will set this based on the file type).
	     Unlike the other ``set'' functions, this function can be called after the archive is
	     opened.

     archive_write_get_bytes_in_last_block()
	     Retrieve the currently-set value for last block size.  A value of -1 here indicates
	     that the library should use default values.

RETURN VALUES
     archive_write_set_bytes_per_block() and archive_write_set_bytes_in_last_block() return
     ARCHIVE_OK on success, or ARCHIVE_FATAL.

     archive_write_get_bytes_per_block() and archive_write_get_bytes_in_last_block() return cur-
     rently configured block size (-1 indicates the default block size), or ARCHIVE_FATAL.

ERRORS
     Detailed error codes and textual descriptions are available from the archive_errno() and
     archive_error_string() functions.
