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


       #include <pcap/pcap.h>

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


       pcap_list_tstamp_types() is used to get a list of the supported time
       stamp types of the interface associated with the pcap descriptor.
       pcap_list_tstamp_types() 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


       pcap_list_tstamp_types() returns the number of time stamp types in the
       array on success and PCAP_ERROR on failure.  A return value of one means
       that the only time stamp type supported is the one in the list, which is
       the capture device's default time stamp type.  A return value of zero
       means that the only time stamp type supported is PCAP_TSTAMP_HOST, which
       is the capture device's default time stamp type (only older versions of
       libpcap will return that; newer versions will always return one or more
       types).  If PCAP_ERROR is returned, pcap_geterr(3) or
       pcap_perror(3) may be called with p as an argument to fetch or
       display the error text.


       These functions became available in libpcap release 1.2.1.  In previous
       releases, the time stamp type cannot be set; only the default time stamp
       type offered by a capture source is available.
