archive_write_close(struct archive *);
archive_write_finish(struct archive *);
archive_write_free(struct archive *);
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 mal-
formed in this case;
Complete the archive and invoke the close callback.
This is a deprecated synonym for 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
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.
