PCAP_SET_TIMEOUT(3PCAP)                              PCAP_SET_TIMEOUT(3PCAP)

NAME         top

       pcap_set_timeout  - set the packet buffer timeout for a not-yet-acti‐
       vated capture handle

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <pcap/pcap.h>

       int pcap_set_timeout(pcap_t *p, int to_ms);

DESCRIPTION         top

       pcap_set_timeout() sets the packet buffer timeout that will be used
       on a capture handle when the handle is activated to to_ms, which is
       in units of milliseconds.  (See pcap(3PCAP) for an explanation of the
       packet buffer timeout.)

       The behavior, if the timeout isn't specified, is undefined.  We
       recommend always setting the timeout to a non-zero value unless
       immediate mode is set, in which case the timeout has no effect.

RETURN VALUE         top

       pcap_set_timeout() returns 0 on success or PCAP_ERROR_ACTIVATED if
       called on a capture handle that has been activated.
