pcap_file(3)                                              pcap_file(3)


       pcap_file - get the standard I/O stream for a savefile being read


       #include <pcap/pcap.h>

       pcap_file(3) *p);


       pcap_file()  returns  the standard I/O stream of the ``savefile,'' if a
       ``savefile'' was opened with pcap_open_offline(3), or  NULL,  if  a
       network    device    was    opened    with    pcap_create(3)    and
       pcap_activate(3), or with pcap_open_live(3).

       Note that the Packet Capture library is usually built with  large  file
       support,  so the standard I/O stream of the ``savefile'' might refer to
       a file larger than  2  gigabytes;  applications  that  use  pcap_file()
       should,  if  possible, use calls that support large files on the return
       value of pcap_file() or the value returned by fileno(3) when passed the
       return value of pcap_file().
