.Sh NAME
.Nm archive_read_close ,
.Nm archive_read_finish ,
.Nm archive_read_free
.Nd functions for reading streaming archives
.Sh LIBRARY
Streaming Archive Library (libarchive, -larchive)
.Sh SYNOPSIS
.In archive.h
.Ft int
.Fn archive_read_close "struct archive *"
.Ft int
.Fn archive_read_finish "struct archive *"
.Ft int
.Fn archive_read_free "struct archive *"
.\"
.Sh DESCRIPTION
.Bl -tag -compact -width indent
.It Fn archive_read_close
Complete the archive and invoke the close callback.
.It Fn archive_read_finish
This is a deprecated synonym for
.Fn archive_read_free .
The new name was introduced with libarchive 3.0.
Applications that need to compile with either libarchive 2
or libarchive 3 should continue to use the
.Fn archive_read_finish
name.
Both names will be supported until libarchive 4.0 is
released, which is not expected to occur earlier
than 2013.
.It Fn archive_read_free
Invokes
.Fn archive_read_close
if it was not invoked manually, then release all resources.
Note: In libarchive 1.x, this function was declared to return
.Ft void ,
which made it impossible to detect certain errors when
.Fn archive_read_close
was invoked implicitly from this function.
The declaration is corrected beginning with libarchive 2.0.
.El
.Sh RETURN VALUES
These functions return
.Cm ARCHIVE_OK
on success, or
.Cm ARCHIVE_FATAL .
.\"
.Sh ERRORS
Detailed error codes and textual descriptions are available from the
.Fn archive_errno
and
.Fn archive_error_string
functions.
