Capp is a packet capture library that wraps libpcap. Capp provides a simple API for capturing packets and automatically unpacks common packets (including Ethernet, IP, TCP, UDP and ICMP). Capp also cooperates with other threads better than other pcap wrapper libraries for ruby.
This product includes software developed by the University of California, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and its contributors.
Basic single-thread packet capturing:
require 'capp' Capp.live.loop do |packet| # ... end
Basic multi-thread packet capturing:
require 'capp' require 'thread' q = Queue.new Thread.new do while packet = q.deq do # ... end end capp = Capp.live.loop do |packet| q.enq packet end
libpcap, tested with 1.1.1 and 1.3.0
sudo gem install capp
After checking out the source, run:
$ rake newb $ rake newb
This task will install any missing dependencies, run the tests/specs, and generate the RDoc. You need to run it twice as the first run installs the dependencies needed to compile the C extension.
