SYNOPSIS #include <archive.h> int archive_write_set_format(struct archive *, int code); int archive_write_set_format_7zip(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_ar(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_ar_bsd(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_ar_svr4(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_by_name(struct archive *, const char *name); int archive_write_set_format_cpio(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_cpio_newc(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_filter_by_ext(struct archive *, const char *filename); int archive_write_set_format_filter_by_ext_def(struct archive *, const char *filename, const char *def_ext); int archive_write_set_format_gnutar(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_iso9660(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_mtree(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_pax(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_pax_restricted(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_raw(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_shar(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_shar_dump(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_ustar(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_v7tar(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_warc(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_xar(struct archive *); int archive_write_set_format_zip(struct archive *);
DESCRIPTION These functions set the format that will be used for the archive. The library can write a variety of common archive formats. archive_write_set_format() Sets the format based on the format code (see archive.h for the full list of format codes). In particular, this can be used in conjunction with archive_format() to create a new archive with the same format as an existing archive. archive_write_set_format_by_name() Sets the corresponding format based on the common name. archive_write_set_format_filter_by_ext(), archive_write_set_format_filter_by_ext_def() Sets both filters and format based on the output filename. Supported extensions: .7z, .zip, .jar, .cpio, .iso, .a, .ar, .tar, .tgz, .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, .tar.xz archive_write_set_format_7zip() archive_write_set_format_ar_bsd(), archive_write_set_format_ar_svr4(), archive_write_set_format_cpio() archive_write_set_format_cpio_newc() archive_write_set_format_gnutar() archive_write_set_format_iso9660() archive_write_set_format_mtree() archive_write_set_format_mtree_classic() archive_write_set_format_pax() archive_write_set_format_pax_restricted() archive_write_set_format_raw() archive_write_set_format_shar() archive_write_set_format_shar_dump() archive_write_set_format_ustar() archive_write_set_format_v7tar() archive_write_set_format_warc() archive_write_set_format_xar() archive_write_set_format_zip() Set the format as specified. More details on the formats supported by libarchive can be found in the libarchive-formats(5) manual page.
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.
