     6Strongly recommended:
     7 * zlib-dev (for reading and writing compressed traces)
     8
     9Optional:

    513Installing libtrace:
    614
    715./configure
    816make
     17make install
    918
     19The above series of commands will install libtrace into /usr/local/lib. If
     20you wish to install to a non-standard location, append the
     21--prefix=DIR option to the ./configure command. ./configure also takes
     22a number of other options - run ./configure --help to view a comprehensive
     23list.

    11 You may need to add the line '/usr/local/lib' to your /etc/ld.so.conf and
    12 run 'ldconfig' as root.
     25You may need to add the library location (e.g. /usr/local/lib) to your
     26/etc/ld.so.conf and run 'ldconfig' as root.

    1529Using libtrace:

    17 There are a number of example programs which should cover the basics of what you need within libtrace-x.y.z/examples/.
    18 
    19 ----------------------------------
    20 Large trace files:
    21 
    22 The versions of libpcap that ship with Debian Woody don't support
    23 large file offsets.
     31The best source of information on how to use libtrace and the tools that come
     32with it is the libtrace wiki located at
     33http://www.wand.net.nz/trac/libtrace/wiki
    2434
    2535
    26 To get around this, you have a number of options:
    27 
    28 * Don't use compressed files.
    29 * Use stdin as the target of the input uri, and use cat or zcat to pipe the
    30   file into stdin, eg:
    31   zcat largetrace.pcap.gz | program -i pcap:-
    32 * Use process substitution in place of a filename, eg:
    33   program -i pcap:<(zcat largetrace.pcap.gz)
