pcap_list_tstamp_types(3)                    pcap_list_tstamp_types(3)




NAME

       pcap_list_tstamp_types,  pcap_free_tstamp_types  -  get  a list of time
       stamp types supported by a capture device, and free that list


SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcap/pcap.h>

       pcap_list_tstamp_types(3) *p, int **tstamp_typesp);
       void pcap_free_tstamp_types(int *tstamp_types);


DESCRIPTION

       pcap_list_tstamp_types(3) is used to get a list of  the  supported  time
       stamp  types  of  the  interface  associated  with the pcap descriptor.
       pcap_list_tstamp_types(3) allocates an array to hold the list  and  sets
       *tstamp_typesp to point to the array.  See pcap-tstamp(7) for a list of
       all the time stamp types.

       The   caller   is   responsible   for   freeing    the    array    with
       pcap_free_tstamp_types(),   which   frees   the   list  pointed  to  by
       tstamp_types.


RETURN VALUE

       pcap_list_tstamp_types(3) returns the number of time stamp types in  the
       array  on  success  and  PCAP_ERROR on failure.  A return value of zero
       means that you cannot specify a time stamp type; you are limited to the
       capture  device's  default time stamp type.  If PCAP_ERROR is returned,
       pcap_geterr() or pcap_perror() may be called with p as an  argument  to
       fetch or display the error text.
