packet capture library
Python pcap module
This is a simplified object-oriented Python wrapper for libpcap - the current tcpdump.org version, and the WinPcap port for Windows.
>>> import pcap >>> for ts, pkt in pcap.pcap(): ... print ts, `pkt` ...
Just try ‘make’, and then ‘make install’
If your libpcap installation is missing the pcap-int.h header, you will need to build against a libpcap build directory. Modify the CONFIG_ARGS in the Makefile to point to the location of your built libpcap distribution, and try again.
See INSTALL file for more detailed build instructions.
