CAPTYPE(1)		The Wireshark Network Analyzer		    CAPTYPE(1)

NAME
       captype - Prints	the types of capture files

SYNOPSIS
       capinfos	<infile> ...

DESCRIPTION
       Captypes	is a program that opens	one or more capture files and prints
       the capture file	type of	each <infile>.

       Capinfos	is able	to detect and read the same capture files that are
       supported by Wireshark.	The input files	don't need a specific filename
       extension; the file format and an optional gzip compression will	be
       automatically detected.	Near the beginning of the DESCRIPTION section
       of wireshark(1) or
       <https://www.wireshark.org/docs/man-pages/wireshark.html> is a detailed
       description of the way Wireshark	handles	this, which is the same	way
       Capinfos	handles	this.
