some devices have no desciption.

snipped from examples:

for(d= alldevs; d != NULL; d= d->next <http://www.winpcap.org/docs/docs31/html/structpcap__if.html#o0>)
	printf("%d. %s", ++i, d->name <http://www.winpcap.org/docs/docs31/html/structpcap__if.html#o1>);
	if (d->description <http://www.winpcap.org/docs/docs31/html/structpcap__if.html#o2>)
		printf(" (%s)\n", d->description <http://www.winpcap.org/docs/docs31/html/structpcap__if.html#o2>);
    		printf(" (No description available)\n");

hope this help.
