    Summary: A system-independent interface for user-level packet capture
    Libpcap provides a portable framework for low-level network monitoring.
    Libpcap can provide network statistics collection, security monitoring
    and network debugging.  Since almost every system vendor provides a
    different interface for packet capture, the libpcap authors created this
    system-independent API to ease in porting and to alleviate the need for
    several system-dependent packet capture modules in each application.
