Subject: [Winpcap-users] Memory Management with pcap_next_ex()

I am using pcap_next_ex() to read packets from a capture file. Who is
responsible for managing the memory that the two pointers I get back
from the function call point to? Is that memory reused as is the case
when I use a callback? If that's the case, how long is it guaranteed to
persist? If not, how do I free it?

I was looking for documentation on that but couldn't find anything.
