PCAP_GETERR(3)		   Library Functions Manual		PCAP_GETERR(3)

NAME
       pcap_geterr, pcap_perror	- get or print libpcap error message text

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<pcap/pcap.h>

       char *pcap_geterr(pcap_t	*p);
       void pcap_perror(pcap_t *p, const char *prefix);

DESCRIPTION
       pcap_geterr()  returns  the  error text pertaining to the last pcap li-
       brary error.  NOTE: the pointer it returns will no longer  point	 to  a
       valid error message string after	the pcap_t passed to it	is closed; you
       must use	or copy	the string before closing the pcap_t.

       pcap_perror() prints the	text of	the last pcap library error on stderr,
       prefixed	by prefix.
