Description

archive_write_add_filter_bzip2(), archive_write_add_filter_compress(), archive_write_add_filter_grzip(), archive_write_add_filter_gzip(), archive_write_add_filter_lrzip(), archive_write_add_filter_lz4(), archive_write_add_filter_lzip(), archive_write_add_filter_lzma(), archive_write_add_filter_lzop(), archive_write_add_filter_xz(),
The resulting archive will be compressed as specified. Note that the compressed output is always properly blocked.
archive_write_add_filter_b64encode(), archive_write_add_filter_uuencode(),
The output will be encoded as specified. The encoded output is always properly blocked.
archive_write_add_filter_none()
This is never necessary. It is provided only for backwards compatibility.
archive_write_add_filter_program()
The archive will be fed into the specified compression program. The output of that program is blocked and written to the client write callbacks.

Return Values

These functions return ARCHIVE_OK on success, or ARCHIVE_FATAL.
