DESCRIPTION ^

This module implements a pcap file builder. You will be able to create frames, then write them in the pcap file format to a file.

ATTRIBUTES ^

The following are inherited attributes:

file

Name of the .pcap file to generate.

overwrite

Overwrites a .pcap file that already exists. Default to not.

append

Append new frames to an existing pcap file. Create it if does not exists yet.

Stores information about the first layer type. It is used to write .pcap file header information.
