libpcap-dev: development library for libpcap (transitional package)

 Empty package to facilitate upgrades, can be safely removed.

libpcap0.8: system interface for user-level packet capture

 libpcap (Packet CAPture) provides a portable framework for low-level
 network monitoring. Applications include network statistics collection,
 security monitoring, network debugging, etc.
 .
 Since almost every system vendor provides a different interface for
 packet capture, and since there are several tools that require this
 functionality, the libpcap authors created this system-independent API
 to ease in porting and to alleviate the need for several
 system-dependent packet capture modules in each application.

libpcap0.8-dbg: debugging symbols for libpcap0.8

 libpcap (Packet CAPture) provides a portable framework for low-level
 network monitoring. Applications include network statistics collection,
 security monitoring, network debugging, etc.
 .
 This package contains the debugging symbols for the libpcap library.

libpcap0.8-dev: development library and header files for libpcap0.8

 Headers, static libraries, and documentation for the libpcap library.
