SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <pcap/pcap.h>

DESCRIPTION         top

       pcap_dump() outputs a packet to the ``savefile'' opened with
       pcap_dump_open(3PCAP).  Note that its calling arguments are
       suitable for use with pcap_dispatch(3PCAP) or pcap_loop(3PCAP).

       as returned by pcap_dump_open().
