SYNOPSIS
       #include <libtar.h>

       void th_set_from_stat(TAR *t, struct stat *s);

       void th_set_type(TAR *t, mode_t mode);

       void th_set_path(TAR *t, char *pathname);

       void th_set_device(TAR *t, dev_t device);

       void th_set_user(TAR *t, uid_t uid);

       void th_set_group(TAR *t, gid_t gid);

       void th_set_mode(TAR *t, mode_t mode);

       void th_set_mtime(TAR *t, time_t fmtime);

       void th_set_size(TAR *t, off_t fsize);

       void th_finish(TAR *t);

VERSION
       This man page documents version 1.2 of libtar.

DESCRIPTION
       The th_set_*() functions each set an individual field of the current
       tar header associated with the TAR handle t.  The th_set_user() and
       th_set_group() functions set both the numeric user/group ID fields and
       the user/group name text fields.  The other functions set only the
       field that they refer to.

       The th_set_from_stat() function uses the other th_set_*() functions to
       set all of the fields at once, based on the data passed to it in the
       argument s.

       The th_finish() function sets the appropriate constants for the magic
       and version fields.  It then calculates the header checksum and fills
       in the checksum field.
