ARCHIVE_READ_HEADER(3)	 BSD Library Functions Manual	ARCHIVE_READ_HEADER(3)

NAME
     archive_read_next_header, archive_read_next_header2 -- functions for
     reading streaming archives

LIBRARY
     Streaming Archive Library (libarchive, -larchive)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <archive.h>

     int
     archive_read_next_header(struct archive *,	struct archive_entry **);

     int
     archive_read_next_header2(struct archive *, struct	archive_entry *);

DESCRIPTION
     archive_read_next_header()
	     Read the header for the next entry	and return a pointer to	a
	     struct archive_entry.  This is a convenience wrapper around
	     archive_read_next_header2() that reuses an	internal struct
	     archive_entry object for each request.
     archive_read_next_header2()
	     Read the header for the next entry	and populate the provided
	     struct archive_entry.

RETURN VALUES
     These functions return ARCHIVE_OK (the operation succeeded), ARCHIVE_WARN
     (the operation succeeded but a non-critical error was encountered),
     ARCHIVE_EOF (end-of-archive was encountered), ARCHIVE_RETRY (the opera-
     tion failed but can be retried), and ARCHIVE_FATAL	(there was a fatal er-
     ror; the archive should be	closed immediately).

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