DESCRIPTION         top

       pcap_snapshot() returns the snapshot length specified when

       a ``savefile''.

       It must not be called on a pcap descriptor created by
       pcap_create(3PCAP) that has not yet been activated by
       pcap_activate(3PCAP).

RETURN VALUE         top

       pcap_snapshot() returns the snapshot length on success and
       PCAP_ERROR_NOT_ACTIVATED if called on a capture handle that has
       been created but not activated.
