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(3PCAP) that has not yet been activated by
pcap_activate(3PCAP). pcap_list_tstamp_types(3PCAP) 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.
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 (only older versions of
libpcap will return that; newer versions will always allow the
time stamp type to be set to the default type).
