archive_write_files() adds one or more files to a new archive. archive_write_dir() adds all the file(s) in a directory to a new archive.

archive_write_dir(
  archive,
  dir,
  format = NULL,
  filter = NULL,
  options = character(),
  ...,
  recursive = TRUE,
  full.names = FALSE
)

archive_write_files(
  archive,
  files,
  format = NULL,
  filter = NULL,
  options = character()
)

Arguments

archive

character(1) The archive filename or an archive object.

dir

character(1) The directory of files to add.

format

character(1) default: NULL The archive format, one of ‘7zip’, ‘cab’, ‘cpio’, ‘iso9660’, ‘lha’, ‘mtree’, ‘shar’, ‘rar’, ‘raw’, ‘tar’, ‘xar’, ‘zip’, ‘warc’ .

filter

options

character() default: character(0) Options to pass to the filter or format. The list of available options are documented in options can 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. See read options for available read options See write options for available write options

...

additional parameters passed to base::dir.

recursive

logical. Should the listing recurse into directories?

full.names

a logical value. If TRUE, the directory path is prepended to the file names to give a relative file path. If FALSE, the file names (rather than paths) are returned.

files

character() One or more files to add to the archive.

Value

An 'archive' object representing the new archive (invisibly).

An 'archive' object representing the new archive (invisibly).
