NAME         top

       pcap_set_tstamp_type  -  set the time stamp type to be used by a cap‐
       ture device

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <pcap/pcap.h>

       int pcap_set_tstamp_type(pcap_t *p, int tstamp_type);

DESCRIPTION         top

       pcap_set_tstamp_type() sets the type of time stamp desired for
       packets captured on the pcap descriptor to the type specified by
       tstamp_type.  It must be called on a pcap descriptor created by
       pcap_create() that has not yet been activated by pcap_activate().
       pcap_list_tstamp_types() will give a list of the time stamp types
       supported by a given capture device.  See pcap-tstamp(7) for a list
       of all the time stamp types.

RETURN VALUE         top

       pcap_set_tstamp_type() returns 0 on success if the specified time
       stamp type is expected to be supported by the capture device,
       PCAP_WARNING_TSTAMP_TYPE_NOTSUP if the specified time stamp type is
       not supported by the capture device, PCAP_ERROR_ACTIVATED if called
       on a capture handle that has been activated, and
       PCAP_ERROR_CANTSET_TSTAMP_TYPE if the capture device doesn't support
       setting the time stamp type.
