PCAP_CREATE(3) Library Functions Manual PCAP_CREATE(3)NAME
pcap_create - create a live capture handle
pcap_t *pcap_create(const char *source, char *errbuf);
pcap_create() is used to create a packet capture handle to look at packets on the network. source is a string that specifies the network
device to open; on Linux systems with 2.2 or later kernels, a source argument of "any" or NULL can be used to capture packets from all
The returned handle must be activated with pcap_activate() before packets can be captured with it; options for the capture, such as promis-
cuous mode, can be set on the handle before activating it.
pcap_create() returns a pcap_t * on success and NULL on failure. If NULL is returned, errbuf is filled in with an appropriate error mes-
sage. errbuf is assumed to be able to hold at least PCAP_ERRBUF_SIZE chars.

pcap_open_live - open a device for capturing
pcap_t *pcap_open_live(const char *device, int snaplen,
int promisc, int to_ms, char *errbuf);
pcap_open_live() is used to obtain a packet capture handle to look at packets on the network. device is a string that specifies the net-
work device to open; on Linux systems with 2.2 or later kernels, a device argument of "any" or NULL can be used to capture packets from all
snaplen specifies the snapshot length to be set on the handle.
promisc specifies if the interface is to be put into promiscuous mode.
to_ms specifies the read timeout in milliseconds.
pcap_open_live() returns a pcap_t * on success and NULL on failure. If NULL is returned, errbuf is filled in with an appropriate error
message. errbuf may also be set to warning text when pcap_open_live() succeeds; to detect this case the caller should store a zero-length
string in errbuf before calling pcap_open_live() and display the warning to the user if errbuf is no longer a zero-length string. errbuf
is assumed to be able to hold at least PCAP_ERRBUF_SIZE chars.

I have seen some misinformation regarding Unix file permissions. I will try to set the record straight. Take a look at this example of some output from ls:

I'm writing a short script to check if a continuous port is running on a server.

I installed NetBSD 6.1.2 amd64 and can't find the apm utility. Is it not in the base system?
Is it necessary to recompile the default amd64 kernel to use apm?
Or is there a new method for power management and suspend/resume? (2 Replies)
