Im in the process of writing some network analyzing code
and cant track down what Im supposed to use instead of the
packet socket for getting datalink layer info.
Ive seen sockaddr_ll floating around, but that seems to
be packet socket related, Ive tried AF_PACKET instead of
AF_INET, doesnt seem to have any effect on the network
interfaces I get back from the ioctls, they still seem
to be AF_INET ones (admittedly thats all I have on the box
but I expected the returned interfaces to be AF_PACKET).
Im totally new to all this, so forgive me if Im talking
shit, I just cant find anything that doesnt use the
apparently obselete (according to the kernel messages I
keep seeing) interface.
