PCAP_GET_TSTAMP_PRECISION(3PCAP)        PCAP_GET_TSTAMP_PRECISION(3PCAP)

NAME         top

       pcap_get_tstamp_precision - get the time stamp precision returned
       in captures

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <pcap/pcap.h>

       int pcap_get_tstamp_precision(pcap_t *p);

DESCRIPTION         top

       pcap_get_tstamp_precision() returns the precision of the time
       stamp returned in packet captures on the pcap descriptor.

RETURN VALUE         top

       pcap_get_tstamp_precision() returns PCAP_TSTAMP_PRECISION_MICRO
       or PCAP_TSTAMP_PRECISION_NANO, which indicates that pcap captures
       contains time stamps in microseconds or nanoseconds respectively.

BACKWARD COMPATIBILITY         top

       This function became available in libpcap release 1.5.1.  In
       previous releases, time stamps from a capture device or savefile
       are always given in seconds and microseconds.
