archive_read_close, archive_read_finish, archive_read_free - functions for reading streaming archives
Streaming Archive Library (libarchive, -larchive)
archive_read_close(struct archive *);
archive_read_finish(struct archive *);
archive_read_free(struct archive *);
- Complete the archive and invoke the close callback.
- This is a deprecated synonym for 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 archive_read_finish() name. Both names will be supported until libarchive 4.0 is released, which is not expected to occur earlier than 2013.
- Invokes archive_read_close() if it was not invoked manually, then release all resources. Note: In libarchive 1.x, this function was declared to return void , which made it impossible to detect certain errors when archive_read_close() was invoked implicitly from this function. The declaration is corrected beginning with libarchive 2.0.
These functions return ARCHIVE_OK on success, or ARCHIVE_FATAL.
Detailed error codes and textual descriptions are available from the archive_errno() and archive_error_string() functions.
