PCAP_DUMP_OPEN(3) Library Functions Manual PCAP_DUMP_OPEN(3)NAME
pcap_dump_open, pcap_dump_fopen - open a file to which to write packets
pcap_dumper_t *pcap_dump_open(pcap_t *p, const char *fname);
pcap_dumper_t *pcap_dump_fopen(pcap_t *p, FILE *fp);
pcap_dump_open() is called to open a ``savefile'' for writing. fname specifies the name of the file to open. The file will have the same
format as those used by tcpdump(8) and tcpslice(1). The name "-" in a synonym for stdout.
pcap_dump_fopen() is called to write data to an existing open stream fp. Note that on Windows, that stream should be opened in binary
p is a capture or ``savefile'' handle returned by an earlier call to pcap_create() and activated by an earlier call to pcap_activate(), or
returned by an earlier call to pcap_open_offline(), pcap_open_live(), or pcap_open_dead(). The link-layer type and snapshot length from p
are used as the link-layer type and snapshot length of the output file.
A pointer to a pcap_dumper_t structure to use in subsequent pcap_dump() and pcap_dump_close() calls is returned on success. NULL is
returned on failure. If NULL is returned, pcap_geterr(p) can be used to get the error text.

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)
