NAME

       pcap_set_timeout - set the read timeout for a not-yet-activated capture
       handle


SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcap/pcap.h>

       pcap_set_timeout(3) *p, int to_ms);


DESCRIPTION

       pcap_set_timeout(3) sets the read timeout that will be used on a capture
       handle when the handle is activated to to_ms, which is in units of mil-
       liseconds.

       The behavior, if the timeout isn't specified, is undefined.  We  recom-
       mend  always  setting  the timeout to a non-zero value unless immediate
       mode is set, in which case the timeout has no effect.


RETURN VALUE

       pcap_set_timeout(3) returns 0  on  success  or  PCAP_ERROR_ACTIVATED  if
       called on a capture handle that has been activated.
