I'm enjoying doing the work of adaptation of code for use libpcap library because many facilities providing me this time to improve the sniffer. For example now the sniffer already have a function that makes scanning systems in the demand for all network interfaces and displays them on the screen so he could select the correct inteface or all together by the User, and also the main function now is accepting commands when executing the binary file.

I'm working too in-depth study of this library to build a parser for packages with their respective protocols.

On the other hand I am also studying to license the library libpcap BSD License which seems to see which are the compativilidades with our policy of free software and the GNU GPL v3 software because now the case go to use this library Pasara having this dependecia exeterna what is beyond the beginning of our project. However reinvent the wheel from scratch can be boring (already thought about writing a library for packet capture I've ever seen a staff of Federal University of Rio de Janeiro build with almost the same performance as the libpcap). So I want our software to be good and have reasonable performance without losing robustness, so the test using this wonderful library.

The goal of this task is to modify the algorithm to include and use libpcap so to test if we have better performance and also because of so we can use various functions of libpcap that can help in the improvement and development of new modules as well as possibly also just use the documentation that this library owns.

This test is being implemented on an experimental basis at first and not definitive but its implementation is necessary because not reinvent the wheel but to test what the best in free library for developing sniffers.
