 I wanted to clarify what this func pcap_next_ex( ) and pcap_open_live(
)actually does.
The reason why i am asking is, when i use these  functions, i see some
packets generated.

for instance, in example program pckdump_ex,

code contains pcap_open_live( ) and pcap_next_ex( ), and the below printf

printf("\n\n%ld:%ld (%ld) %s\n", header->ts.tv_sec, header->ts.tv_usec,

 i see the output as

1310721525:970437 (150) \Device\NPF_{557064F1-7C1C-49D3-9633-A7E002B01AD2}

where and how is the packet generated?

your suggestions will be valuable to me.

Thanks in advance !!!!!!!!!
