    15Installing libtrace:

    4 ----------------------------------
    5 To make and install libtrace:
    6 
    7 libtrace requires the development libraries for libpcap and libz to compile
    8 eg, on Debian Woody these are called libpcap-dev and zlib1g-dev.
    9 
    10 
    11 tar zxvf libtrace-x.y.z.tar.gz
    12 cd libtrace-x.y.z
    137./configure
    148make
    15 (as root)
    16 make install

    2314----------------------------------
    24 To build the docs:
    25 
    26 cd libtrace-x.y.z
    27 doxygen
    28 
    29 
    30 This will build the docs into libtrace-x.y.z/docs/{html,man}
    31 There is currently no install candidate for these - sorry about that.
    32 
    33 
    34 ----------------------------------
    3515Using libtrace:
    3616
    3717There are a number of example programs which should cover the basics of what you need within libtrace-x.y.z/examples/.

    39 
    40 
    4119----------------------------------
    4220Large trace files:
    4321
    44 Note that if you wish to use libtrace to read in large ( > 2/4 GB) files, and
    45 you wish to use gz-compressed traces or pcap traces, you will need to link
    46 against a version of libz or libpcap that supports large files.
    47 
    48 The versions of libz and libpcap that ship with Debian Woody don't support
     22The versions of libpcap that ship with Debian Woody don't support
    4923large file offsets.
    5024
     
    5529* Use stdin as the target of the input uri, and use cat or zcat to pipe the
    5630  file into stdin, eg:
    57   zcat largetrace.erf.gz | program -i erf:-
     31  zcat largetrace.pcap.gz | program -i pcap:-
    5832* Use process substitution in place of a filename, eg:
    59   program -i erf:<(zcat largetrace.erf.gz)
     33  program -i pcap:<(zcat largetrace.pcap.gz)
