DESCRIPTION
     archive_read_support_format_7zip(), archive_read_support_format_ar(),
	     archive_read_support_format_cab(),
	     archive_read_support_format_cpio(),
	     archive_read_support_format_iso9660(),
	     archive_read_support_format_lha(),
	     archive_read_support_format_mtree(),
	     archive_read_support_format_rar(),
	     archive_read_support_format_raw(),
	     archive_read_support_format_tar(),
	     archive_read_support_format_xar(),
	     archive_read_support_format_zip()
	     Enables support---including auto-detection	code---for the speci-
	     fied archive format.  For example,
	     archive_read_support_format_tar() enables support for a variety
	     of	standard tar formats, old-style	tar, ustar, pax	interchange
	     format, and many common variants.
     archive_read_support_format_all()
	     Enables support for all available formats except the "raw"	format
	     (see below).
     archive_read_support_format_by_code()
	     Enables a single format specified by the format code.  This can
	     be	useful when reading a single archive twice; use
	     archive_format() after reading the	first time and pass the	re-
	     sulting code to this function to selectively enable only the nec-
	     essary format support.  Note:  In statically-linked executables,
	     this will cause your program to include support for every format.
	     If	executable size	is a concern, you may wish to avoid using this
	     function.
     archive_read_support_format_empty()
	     Enables support for treating empty	files as empty archives.  Be-
	     cause empty files are valid for several different formats,	it is
	     not possible to accurately	determine a format for an empty	file
	     based purely on contents.	So empty files are treated by
	     libarchive	as a distinct format.
     archive_read_support_format_raw()
	     The "raw" format handler allows libarchive	to be used to read ar-
	     bitrary data.  It treats any data stream as an archive with a
	     single entry.  The	pathname of this entry is "data"; all other
	     entry fields are unset.  This is not enabled by
	     archive_read_support_format_all() in order	to avoid erroneous
	     handling of damaged archives.

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.

SEE ALSO
     tar(1), libarchive(3), archive_read_data(3), archive_read_filter(3),
     archive_read_set_options(3), archive_util(3), tar(5)

BUGS
     Many traditional archiver programs	treat empty files as valid empty ar-
     chives.  For example, many	implementations	of tar(1) allow	you to append
     entries to	an empty file.	Of course, it is impossible to determine the
     format of an empty	file by	inspecting the contents, so this library
     treats empty files	as having a special "empty" format.

     Using the "raw" handler together with any other handler will often	work
     but can produce surprising	results.
