pcap_can_set_rfmon(3)                            pcap_can_set_rfmon(3)




NAME

       pcap_can_set_rfmon  -  check whether monitor mode can be set for a not-
       yet-activated capture handle


SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcap/pcap.h>

       pcap_can_set_rfmon(3) *p);


DESCRIPTION

       pcap_can_set_rfmon(3) checks whether monitor mode could be set on a cap-
       ture handle when the handle is activated.


RETURN VALUE

       pcap_can_set_rfmon(3)  returns  0 if monitor mode could not be set, 1 if
       monitor mode could be set, and a negative value on error.   A  negative
       return  value  indicates  what  error condition occurred.  The possible
       error values are:

       PCAP_ERROR_NO_SUCH_DEVICE
              The capture source specified when the handle was created doesn't
              exist.

       PCAP_ERROR_PERM_DENIED
              The  process  doesn't  have  permission to check whether monitor
              mode could be supported.

       PCAP_ERROR_ACTIVATED
              The capture handle has already been activated.

       PCAP_ERROR
              Another error occurred.  pcap_geterr() or pcap_perror()  may  be
              called  with  p  as  an  argument  to fetch or display a message
              describing the error.

       Additional error codes may be added in the  future;  a  program  should
       check  for  0,  1,  and  negative, return codes, and treat all negative
       return codes as errors.  pcap_statustostr() can be called, with a warn-
       ing  or  error  code  as an argument, to fetch a message describing the
       warning or error code.
