+.B pcap_inject()
+sends a raw packet through the network interface;
+.I buf
+points to the data of the packet, including the link-layer header, and
+.I size
+is the number of bytes in the packet.
+It returns the number of bytes written on success. A return of \-1
+indicates an error in which case
+.B pcap_perror()
+.B pcap_geterr()
+may be used to display the error text.
+Note that, even if you successfully open the network interface, you
+might not have permission to send packets on it, or it might not support
+sending packets; as
+.I pcap_open_live()
+doesn't have a flag to indicate whether to open for capturing, sending,
+or capturing and sending, you cannot request an open that supports
+sending and be notified at open time whether sending will be possible.
+Note also that some devices might not support sending packets.
+.B pcap_sendpacket()
+is like
+.BR pcap_inject() ,
+but it returns 0 on success and \-1 on failure.
+.RB ( pcap_inject()
+comes from OpenBSD;
+.B pcap_sendpacket()
+comes from WinPcap. Both are provided for compatibility.)
.B pcap_dump()
outputs a packet to the ``savefile'' opened with
.BR pcap_dump_open() .
