Hi Muskovitz,

Several years ago I wrote a script using Net::Pcap and NetPacket to read a capture file - however, there is a lot of low-level decoding involved (e.g. reassembling IP fragments is fun), and a lot of re-inventing the wheel. So my suggestion would be that you use the already highly advanced features of Wireshark, which you can access from the command line via tshark, to get at the data in the capture file and filter it, and have tshark output it in a format your Perl program can parse. In your Perl program you can capture the data from tshark using a module like Capture::Tiny.

Hope this helps,

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
