IS_ETHERDEV_ADDR(9)					      Network device support					       IS_ETHERDEV_ADDR(9)

NAME
is_etherdev_addr - Tell if given Ethernet address belongs to the device. SYNOPSIS
bool is_etherdev_addr(const struct net_device * dev, const u8 addr[6 + 2]); ARGUMENTS
dev Pointer to a device structure addr[6 + 2] Pointer to a six-byte array containing the Ethernet address DESCRIPTION
Compare passed address with all addresses of the device. Return true if the address if one of the device addresses. Note that this function calls ether_addr_equal_64bits so take care of the right padding. COPYRIGHT

NAME
pcap_findalldevs, pcap_freealldevs - get a list of capture devices, and free that list SYNOPSIS
#include <pcap/pcap.h> char errbuf[PCAP_ERRBUF_SIZE]; int pcap_findalldevs(pcap_if_t **alldevsp, char *errbuf); void pcap_freealldevs(pcap_if_t *alldevs); DESCRIPTION
pcap_findalldevs() constructs a list of network devices that can be opened with pcap_create() and pcap_activate() or with pcap_open_live(). (Note that there may be network devices that cannot be opened by the process calling pcap_findalldevs(), because, for example, that process does not have sufficient privileges to open them for capturing; if so, those devices will not appear on the list.) If pcap_findalldevs() succeeds, the pointer pointed to by alldevsp is set to point to the first element of the list, or to NULL if no devices were found (this is considered success). Each element of the list is of type pcap_if_t, and has the following members: next if not NULL, a pointer to the next element in the list; NULL for the last element of the list name a pointer to a string giving a name for the device to pass to pcap_open_live() description if not NULL, a pointer to a string giving a human-readable description of the device addresses a pointer to the first element of a list of network addresses for the device, or NULL if the device has no addresses flags device flags: PCAP_IF_LOOPBACK set if the device is a loopback interface PCAP_IF_UP set if the device is up PCAP_IF_RUNNING set if the device is running Each element of the list of addresses is of type pcap_addr_t, and has the following members: next if not NULL, a pointer to the next element in the list; NULL for the last element of the list addr a pointer to a struct sockaddr containing an address netmask if not NULL, a pointer to a struct sockaddr that contains the netmask corresponding to the address pointed to by addr broadaddr if not NULL, a pointer to a struct sockaddr that contains the broadcast address corresponding to the address pointed to by addr; may be null if the device doesn't support broadcasts dstaddr if not NULL, a pointer to a struct sockaddr that contains the destination address corresponding to the address pointed to by addr; may be null if the device isn't a point-to-point interface Note that the addresses in the list of addresses might be IPv4 addresses, IPv6 addresses, or some other type of addresses, so you must check the sa_family member of the struct sockaddr before interpreting the contents of the address; do not assume that the addresses are all IPv4 addresses, or even all IPv4 or IPv6 addresses. IPv4 addresses have the value AF_INET, IPv6 addresses have the value AF_INET6 (which older operating systems that don't support IPv6 might not define), and other addresses have other values. Whether other addresses are returned, and what types they might have is platform-dependent. For IPv4 addresses, the struct sockaddr pointer can be interpreted as if it pointed to a struct sockaddr_in; for IPv6 addresses, it can be interpreted as if it pointed to a struct sockaddr_in6. The list of devices must be freed with pcap_freealldevs(), which frees the list pointed to by alldevs. RETURN VALUE
pcap_findalldevs() returns 0 on success and -1 on failure; as indicated, finding no devices is considered success, rather than failure, so 0 will be returned in that case. If -1 is returned, errbuf is filled in with an appropriate error message. errbuf is assumed to be able to hold at least PCAP_ERRBUF_SIZE chars. SEE ALSO
