Summary:  Development environment for the packet capture library
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.

This package contains development files needed to develop libpcap-based
applications such as tcpdump, etc.
