pcap_major_version(3pcap) — Linux manual page



NAME         top

       pcap_major_version, pcap_minor_version - get the version number
       of a savefile

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <pcap/pcap.h>

       int pcap_major_version(pcap_t *p);
       int pcap_minor_version(pcap_t *p);

DESCRIPTION         top

       If p refers to a ``savefile'', pcap_major_version() returns the
       major number of the file format of the ``savefile'' and
       pcap_minor_version() returns the minor number of the file format
       of the ``savefile''.  The version number is stored in the
       ``savefile''; note that the meaning of its values depends on the
       type of ``savefile'' (for example, pcap or pcapng).

       If p refers to a live capture, the values returned by
       pcap_major_version() and pcap_minor_version() are not meaningful.
