pcap_can_set_rfmon() checks whether monitor mode could be set on a capture handle when the handle is activated.


pcap_can_set_rfmon() returns 0 if monitor mode could not be set, 1 if monitor mode could be set, PCAP_ERROR_NO_SUCH_DEVICE if the capture source specified when the handle was created doesn't exist, PCAP_ERROR_PERM_DENIED if the process doesn't have permission to check whether monitor mode could be supported, PCAP_ERROR_ACTIVATED if called on a capture handle that has been activated, or PCAP_ERROR if an error occurred. If PCAP_ERROR is returned, pcap_geterr() or pcap_perror() may be called with p as an argument to fetch or display the error text.
