Python Question

'module' object has no attribute 'pcapObject'

I have the following sample code which doesn't seem to want to run.

import pcap
pc = pcap.pcapObject()
dev = sys.argv[1]
pc.open_live(dev, 1600, 0, 100)
pc.setfilter("udp port 53", 0, 0)
while 1:
pc.dispatch(1, p.pcap_dispatch)


I'm really not sure why. I'm using pypcap. I'm running this on both 2.5.1 and 2.6 versions of python (separate machines) using mac osx (leopard).

Answer

At least according to documentation from the project this line:

pc = pcap.pcapObject()

Should really be:

pc = pcap.pcap()
