LIBRARY

Streaming Archive Library (libarchive, -larchive)

SYNOPSIS

int archive_write_set_filter_option(struct archive *, const char *module, const char *option, const char *value); int archive_write_set_format_option(struct archive *, const char *module, const char *option, const char *value); int archive_write_set_option(struct archive *, const char *module, const char *option, const char *value); int archive_write_set_options(struct archive *, const char *options);

DESCRIPTION

These functions provide a way for libarchive clients to configure spe- cific write modules. archive_write_set_filter_option(), archive_write_set_format_option() Specifies an option that will be passed to currently-registered filters (including decompression filters) or format readers. If option and value are both NULL, these functions will do noth- ing and ARCHIVE_OK will be returned. If option is NULL but value is not, these functions will do nothing and ARCHIVE_FAILED will be returned. If module is not NULL, option and value will be provided to the filter or reader named module. The return value will be that of the module. If there is no such module, ARCHIVE_FAILED will be returned. If module is NULL, option and value will be provided to every registered module. If any module returns ARCHIVE_FATAL, this value will be returned immediately. Otherwise, ARCHIVE_OK will be returned if any module accepts the option, and ARCHIVE_FAILED in all other cases. archive_write_set_option() Calls archive_write_set_format_option(), then archive_write_set_filter_option(). If either function returns ARCHIVE_FATAL, ARCHIVE_FATAL will be returned immediately. Oth- erwise, greater of the two values will be returned. archive_write_set_options() options is a comma-separated list of options. If options is NULL or empty, ARCHIVE_OK will be returned immediately. Individual options have one of the following forms: option=value The option/value pair will be provided to every module. Modules that do not accept an option with this name will ignore it. option The option will be provided to every module with a value of ``1''. !option The option will be provided to every module with a NULL value. module:option=value, module:option, module:!option As above, but the corresponding option and value will be provided only to modules whose name matches module.

OPTIONS

Filter gzip compression-level The value is interpreted as a decimal integer specifying the gzip compression level. Filter xz compression-level The value is interpreted as a decimal integer specifying the compression level. Format mtree cksum, device, flags, gid, gname, indent, link, md5, mode, nlink, rmd160, sha1, sha256, sha384, sha512, size, time, uid, uname Enable a particular keyword in the mtree output. Prefix with an exclamation mark to disable the corresponding keyword. The default is equivalent to ``device, flags, gid, gname, link, mode, nlink, size, time, type, uid, uname''. all Enables all of the above keywords. use-set Enables generation of /set lines that specify default values for the following files and/or directories. indent XXX needs explanation XXX Format iso9660 - volume metadata These options are used to set standard ISO9660 metadata. abstract-file=filename The file with the specified name will be identified in the ISO9660 metadata as holding the abstract for this volume. Default: none. application-id=filename The file with the specified name will be identified in the ISO9660 metadata as holding the application identi- fier for this volume. Default: none. biblio-file=filename The file with the specified name will be identified in the ISO9660 metadata as holding the bibliography for this volume. Default: none. copyright-file=filename The file with the specified name will be identified in the ISO9660 metadata as holding the copyright for this volume. Default: none. publisher=filename The file with the specified name will be identified in the ISO9660 metadata as holding the publisher information for this volume. Default: none. volume-id=string The specified string will be used as the Volume Identi- fier in the ISO9660 metadata. It is limited to 32 bytes. Default: none. Format iso9660 - boot support These options are used to make an ISO9660 image that can be directly booted on various systems. boot=filename The file matching this name will be used as the El Torito boot image file. boot-catalog=name The name that will be used for the El Torito boot cata- log. Default: boot.catalog boot-info-table The boot image file provided by the boot=filename option will be edited with appropriate boot information in bytes 8 through 64. Default: disabled boot-load-seg=hexadecimal-number The load segment for a no-emulation boot image. boot-load-size=decimal-number The number of "virtual" 512-byte sectors to be loaded from a no-emulation boot image. Some very old BIOSes can only load very small images, setting this value to 4 will often allow such BIOSes to load the first part of the boot image (which will then need to be intelligent enough to load the rest of itself). This should not be needed unless you are trying to support systems with very old BIOSes. This defaults to the full size of the image. boot-type=value Specifies the boot semantics used by the El Torito boot image: If the value is fd, then the boot image is assumed to be a bootable floppy image. If the value is hd, then the the boot image is assumed to be a bootable hard disk image. If the value is no-emulation, the boot image is used without floppy or hard disk emulation. If the boot image is exactly 1.2MB, 1.44MB, or 2.88MB, then the default is fd, otherwise the default is no-emulation. Format iso9660 - filename and size extensions Various extensions to the base ISO9660 format. allow-ldots If enabled, allows filenames to begin with a leading period. If disabled, filenames that begin with a leading period will have that period replaced by an underscore character in the standard ISO9660 namespace. This does not impact names stored in the Rockridge or Joliet exten- sion area. Default: disabled. allow-lowercase If enabled, allows filenames to contain lowercase charac- ters. If disabled, filenames will be forced to upper- case. This does not impact names stored in the Rockridge or Joliet extension area. Default: disabled. allow-multidot If enabled, allows filenames to contain multiple period characters, in violation of the ISO9660 specification. If disabled, additional periods will be converted to underscore characters. This does not impact names stored in the Rockridge or Joliet extension area. Default: dis- abled. allow-period If enabled, allows filenames to contain trailing period characters, in violation of the ISO9660 specification. If disabled,trailing periods will be converted to under- score characters. This does not impact names stored in the Rockridge or Joliet extension area. Default: dis- abled. allow-pvd-lowercase If enabled, the Primary Volume Descriptor may contain lowercase ASCII characters, in violation of the ISO9660 specification. If disabled, characters will be converted to uppercase ASCII. Default: disabled. allow-sharp-tilde If enabled, sharp and tilde characters will be permitted in filenames, in violation if the ISO9660 specification. If disabled, such characters will be converted to under- score characters. Default: disabled. allow-vernum If enabled, version numbers will be included with files. If disabled, version numbers will be suppressed, in vio- lation of the ISO9660 standard. This does not impact names stored in the Rockridge or Joliet extension area. Default: enabled. iso-level This enables support for file size and file name exten- sions in the core ISO9660 area. The name extensions specified here do not affect the names stored in the Rockridge or Joliet extension areas. iso-level=1 The most compliant form of ISO9660 image. File- names are limited to 8.3 uppercase format, direc- tory names are limited to 8 uppercase characters, files are limited to 4 GiB, the complete ISO9660 image cannot exceed 4 GiB. iso-level=2 Filenames are limited to 30 uppercase characters with a 30-character extension, directory names are limited to 30 characters, files are limited to 4 GiB. iso-level=3 As with iso-level=2, except that files may exceed 4 GiB. iso-level=4 As with iso-level=3, except that filenames may be up to 193 characters and may include arbitrary 8-bit characters. joliet Microsoft's Joliet extensions store a completely separate set of directory information about each file. In partic- ular, this information includes Unicode filenames of up to 255 characters. Default: enabled. limit-depth If enabled, libarchive will use directory relocation records to ensure that no pathname exceeds the ISO9660 limit of 8 directory levels. If disabled, no relocation will occur. Default: enabled. limit-dirs If enabled, libarchive will cause an error if there are more than 65536 directories. If disabled, there is no limit on the number of directories. Default: enabled pad If enabled, 300 kiB of zero bytes will be appended to the end of the archive. Default: enabled relaxed-filenames If enabled, all 7-bit ASCII characters are permitted in filenames (except lowercase characters unless allow-lowercase is also specified). This violates ISO9660 standards. This does not impact names stored in the Rockridge or Joliet extension area. Default: dis- abled. rockridge The Rockridge extensions store an additional set of POSIX-style file information with each file, including mtime, atime, ctime, permissions, and long filenames with arbitrary 8-bit characters. These extensions also sup- port symbolic links and other POSIX file types. Default: enabled. Format iso9660 - zisofs support The zisofs extensions permit each file to be independently com- pressed using a gzip-compatible compression. This can provide significant size savings, but requires the reading system to have support for these extensions. These extensions are disabled by default. compression-level=number The compression level used by the deflate compressor. Ranges from 0 (least effort) to 9 (most effort). Default: 6 zisofs Synonym for zisofs=direct. zisofs=direct Compress each file in the archive. Unlike zisofs=indirect, this is handled entirely within libarchive and does not require a separate utility. For best results, libarchive tests each file and will store the file uncompressed if the compression does not actu- ally save any space. In particular, files under 2k will never be compressed. Note that boot image files are never compressed. zisofs=indirect Recognizes files that have already been compressed with the mkzftree utility and sets up the necessary file meta- data so that readers will correctly identify these as zisofs-compressed files. zisofs-exclude=filename Specifies a filename that should not be compressed when using zisofs=direct. This option can be provided multi- ple times to suppress compression on many files.

EXAMPLES

The following example creates an archive write handle to create a gzip- compressed ISO9660 format image. The two options here specify that the ISO9660 archive will use kernel.img as the boot image for El Torito boot- ing, and that the gzip compressor should use the maximum compression level. a = archive_write_new(); archive_write_add_filter_gzip(a); archive_write_set_format_iso9660(a); archive_write_set_options(a, "boot=kernel.img,compression=9"); archive_write_open_filename(a, filename, blocksize);

ERRORS

Detailed error codes and textual descriptions are available from the archive_errno() and archive_error_string() functions.
