REORDERCAP(1)		The Wireshark Network Analyzer		 REORDERCAP(1)

NAME
       reordercap - Reorder input file by timestamp into output	file

SYNOPSIS
       reordercap [ -n ] [ -v ]	<infile> <outfile>

DESCRIPTION
       Reordercap is a program that reads an input capture file	and rewrites
       the frames to an	output capture file, but with the frames sorted	by
       increasing timestamp.

       This functionality may be useful	when capture files have	been created
       by combining frames from	more than one well-synchronised	source,	but
       the frames have not been	combined in strict time	order.

       Reordercap writes the output capture file in the	same format as the
       input capture file.

       Reordercap is able to detect, read and write the	same capture files
       that are	supported by Wireshark.	 The input file	doesn't	need a
       specific	filename extension; the	file format and	an optional gzip
       compression will	be detected automatically.  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
       reordercap handles this.

OPTIONS
       -n  When	the -n option is used, reordercap will not write out the
	   output file if it finds that	the input file is already in order.

       -v  Print the version and exit.

SEE ALSO

       text2pcap(1), pcap-filter(7) or tcpdump(8)

NOTES
       Reordercap is part of the Wireshark distribution.  The latest version
       of Wireshark can	be found at <https://www.wireshark.org>.

       It may make sense to move this functionality into editcap, or perhaps
       mergecap, in which case reordercap could	be retired.

       HTML versions of	the Wireshark project man pages	are available at:
