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.
