zip_close man page

zip_close — close zip archive

Library

libzip (-lzip)

Synopsis

#include <zip.h>

int

zip_close(zip_t *archive);

Description

The zip_close() function closes archive and frees the memory allocated for it. If any files within were changed, those changes are written to disk first. If writing changes fails, zip_close() fails and archive is left unchanged. If archive contains no files, the file is completely removed (no empty archive is written).

To close a zip file without saving changes, use zip_discard(3).

Return Values

Upon successful completion 0 is returned. Otherwise, -1 is returned and the error code in archive is set to indicate the error.

Errors

zip_close() will fail if:

[ZIP_ER_EOF]

Unexpected end-of-file found while reading from a file.

[ZIP_ER_INTERNAL]

The callback function of an added or replaced file returned an error but failed to report which.

[ZIP_ER_INVAL]

The path argument is NULL.

[ZIP_ER_MEMORY]

Required memory could not be allocated.

[ZIP_ER_NOZIP]

File is not a zip archive.

[ZIP_ER_READ]

A file read failed.

[ZIP_ER_RENAME]

A temporary file could not be renamed to its final name.

[ZIP_ER_SEEK]

A file seek failed.

[ZIP_ER_TMPOPEN]

A temporary file could not be created.

[ZIP_ER_WRITE]

A file write failed.

[ZIP_ER_ZLIB]

An error occurred while (de)compressing a stream with zlib(3).

Additionally, any errors returned by the callback function for added or replaced files will be passed back.
