From Reinhard Speyerer via bug 4779:
From reading the rawshark(1) manpage my assumption was that rawshark could be used like $ /usr/bml/bin/rawshark -s -r test.pcap -d encap:EN10MB ... However rawshark either expects the -r argument to be - (read from stdin) or a pipe which results in the following error message: rawshark: ".../test.pcap" is neither an interface nor a pipe The proposed rawshark.pod patch updates the -r description to the implemented rawshark functionality. The patch also applies to the current SVN version. svn path=/trunk/; revision=33063
