NAME

pcap_datalink_val_to_name, pcap_datalink_val_to_description, pcap_datalink_val_to_description_or_dlt - get a name or description for a link-layer header type value  

SYNOPSIS

#include <pcap.h>

const char *pcap_datalink_val_to_name(int dlt);
const char *pcap_datalink_val_to_description(int dlt);
const char *pcap_datalink_val_to_description_or_dlt(int dlt);
 

DESCRIPTION

pcap_datalink_val_to_name() translates a link-layer header type value to the corresponding link-layer header type name, which is the DLT_ name for the link-layer header type value with the DLT_ removed. NULL is returned if the type value does not correspond to a known DLT_ value.

pcap_datalink_val_to_description() translates a link-layer header type value to a short description of that link-layer header type. NULL is returned if the type value does not correspond to a known DLT_ value.

pcap_datalink_val_to_description_or_dlt() translates a link-layer header type value to a short description of that link-layer header type just like pcap_datalink_val_to_description. If the type value does not correspond to a known DLT_ value, the string "DLT n" is returned, where n is the value of the dlt argument.
