PCAP_DATALINK_VAL_TO_NAME(3Library Functions ManuaPCAP_DATALINK_VAL_TO_NAME(3)

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.
