ARCHIVE_WRITE_FREE(3)		   BSD Library Functions Manual 	    ARCHIVE_WRITE_FREE(3)

NAME
     archive_write_fail, archive_write_close, archive_write_finish, archive_write_free -- func-
     tions 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 cre-
	     ation 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 care-
	     ful 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.
