NAME
       pcap_get_tstamp_precision - get the time stamp precision returned in
       captures

SYNOPSIS
       #include <pcap/pcap.h>

       int pcap_get_tstamp_precision(pcap_t *p);

DESCRIPTION
       pcap_get_tstamp_precision() returns the precision of the time stamp
       returned in packet captures on the pcap descriptor.

RETURN VALUE
       pcap_get_tstamp_precision() returns PCAP_TSTAMP_PRECISION_MICRO or
       PCAP_TSTAMP_PRECISION_NANO, which indicates that pcap captures contains
       time stamps in microseconds or nanoseconds respectively.

BACKWARD COMPATIBILITY
