       device

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <pcap/pcap.h>

       char errbuf[PCAP_ERRBUF_SIZE];

       int pcap_lookupnet(const char *device, bpf_u_int32 *netp,
               bpf_u_int32 *maskp, char *errbuf);

DESCRIPTION         top

       pcap_lookupnet() is used to determine the IPv4 network number and
       mask associated with the network device device.  Both netp and maskp
       are bpf_u_int32 pointers.

RETURN VALUE         top

       pcap_lookupnet() returns 0 on success and -1 on failure.  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.
