PCAP_DUMP_FTELL(3)	   Library Functions Manual	    PCAP_DUMP_FTELL(3)

NAME
       pcap_dump_ftell,	 pcap_dump_ftell64 - get the current file offset for a
       savefile	being written

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<pcap/pcap.h>

       long pcap_dump_ftell(pcap_dumper_t *p);
       int64_t pcap_dump_ftell64(pcap_dumper_t *p);

DESCRIPTION
       pcap_dump_ftell() returns the current file  position  for  the  ``save-
       file'',	representing  the  number of bytes written by pcap_dump_open()
       and pcap_dump().	 -1 is returned	on error.  If the current  file	 posi-
       tion  does  not fit in a	long, it will be truncated; this can happen on
       32-bit UNIX-like	systems	 with  large  file  support  and  on  Windows.
       pcap_dump_ftell64()  returns the	current	file position in a int64_t, so
       if file offsets that don't fit in a long	but that fit in	a int64_t  are
       supported,  this	will return the	file offset without truncation.	 -1 is
       returned	on error.
