Readme for pcap-

A Haskell wrapper around the C libpcap library.

It provides Haskell bindings for most of the libpcap API as of libpcap version 0.9.7. The bindings are divided into a very efficient low-level wrapper, Network.Pcap.Base, and a higher-level module, Network.Pcap, that's easier to use.

To install:

cabal install pcap
