archive_write_finish_entry(3) [freebsd man page]

ARCHIVE_WRITE_FINISH_ENTRY(3)				   BSD Library Functions Manual 			     ARCHIVE_WRITE_FINISH_ENTRY(3)

NAME
archive_write_finish_entry -- functions for creating archives LIBRARY
Streaming Archive Library (libarchive, -larchive) SYNOPSIS
#include <archive.h> int archive_write_finish_entry(struct archive *); DESCRIPTION
Close out the entry just written. In particular, this writes out the final padding required by some formats. Ordinarily, clients never need to call this, as it is called automatically by archive_write_next_header() and archive_write_close() as needed. RETURN VALUES
This function returns ARCHIVE_OK on success, or one of several non-zero error codes for errors. Specific error codes include: ARCHIVE_RETRY for operations that might succeed if retried, ARCHIVE_WARN for unusual conditions that do not prevent further operations, and ARCHIVE_FATAL for serious errors that make remaining operations impossible. ERRORS
Detailed error codes and textual descriptions are available from the archive_errno() and archive_error_string() functions. SEE ALSO

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 -- 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. SEE ALSO
tar(1), libarchive(3), archive_write_set_options(3), cpio(5), mtree(5), tar(5) BSD
