Binary package “libpcap0.8-dev” in ubuntu hardy
Development library and header files for libpcap 0.8
Headers, static libraries, and documentation for the libpcap library.
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, we've created this system-independent API to ease in
porting and to alleviate the need for several system-dependent packet
capture modules in each application.
