NAME

       karpski - A Gtk-based sniffer / protocol analyzer

SYNOPSIS

       karpski [ device ]

DESCRIPTION

       karpski  is a Gtk-based sniffer/protocol analyzer.  It uses the libpcap
       library written by  Van  Jacobson  and  crew  at  ftp.ee.lbl.gov.   The
       various   protocols   are   defined   in   karpskiā€™s  definition  file,
       protocol_parser.dat.  This file is written in my  protocol  description
       language  which  is in a state of flux.  Therefore, I will not describe
       this.
