NAME

       pcap_set_tstamp_type  - set the time stamp type to be used by a capture

       pcap_set_tstamp_type(3) *p, int tstamp_type);


DESCRIPTION

       pcap_set_tstamp_type(3) sets the the type  of  time  stamp  desired  for
       packets  captured  on  the  pcap  descriptor  to  the type specified by
       tstamp_type.  It must  be  called  on  a  pcap  descriptor  created  by
       pcap_create()  that  has  not  yet  been  activated by pcap_activate().
       pcap_list_tstamp_types() will give a list of the time stamp types  sup-
       ported by a given capture device.  See pcap-tstamp(7) for a list of all
       the time stamp types.


RETURN VALUE

       pcap_set_tstamp_type(3) returns 0 on success if the specified time stamp
       type  is  expected  to  be  supported by the capture device, PCAP_WARN-
       ING_TSTAMP_TYPE_NOTSUP if the specified time stamp  type  is  not  sup-
       ported  by the capture device, PCAP_ERROR_ACTIVATED if called on a cap-
       ture handle that has been activated, and PCAP_ERROR_CANTSET_TSTAMP_TYPE
       if the capture device doesn't support setting the time stamp type.
