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(3)
       and pcap_dump(3).  PCAP_ERROR is	returned on error. If the current file
       position	 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.
       PCAP_ERROR is returned on error.
