pkt:decapsulate(Data) -> Packet

    Types   Data = binary()
            Packet = [ Headers, Payload ]
            Headers = Header
            Header = {ether, binary()} | {arp, binary()} | {null, binary()} |
                {linux_cooked, binary()} | {ipv4, binary()} |
                {ipv6, binary()} | {tcp, binary()} | {udp, binary()} |
                {sctp, binary()} | {icmp, binary()} | {unsupported, binary()}
            Payload = binary()

    Attempts to decapsulate the packet into a list of tuples.

The following functions create the protocol headers, converting between records and binaries. See include/pkt.hrl for definition of the record types.

ether(Packet) -> {#ether{}, Payload} | binary()
null(Packet) -> {#null{}, Payload} | binary()
linux_cooked(Packet) -> {#linux_cooked{}, Payload} | binary()
arp(Packet) -> {#arp{}, Payload} | binary()
ipv4(Packet) -> {#ipv4{}, Payload} | binary()
ipv6(Packet) -> {#ipv6{}, Payload} | binary()
tcp(Packet) -> {#tcp{}, Payload} | binary()
sctp(Packet) -> {#sctp{}, Payload} | binary()
udp(Packet) -> {#udp{}, Payload} | binary()
icmp(Packet) -> {#icmp{}, Payload} | binary()

    Types   Packet = Header | binary()
            Header = #ether{} | #null{} | #linux_cooked{} | #arp{} |
                #ipv4{} | #ipv6{} | #tcp{} | #sctp{} | #upd{} | #icmp{}

makesum(Packet) -> integer()

    Types   Packet = IPv4_header | [IPv4_header, Header, Payload]
            IPv4_header = #ipv4{}
            Header = #tcp{} | #udp{}
            Payload = binary()

    Calculate the checksum of the packet.
