Subject Re: Getting ethernet packets content under FreeBSD? (fwd)
Date Sun, 23 Nov 1997 03:44:10 GMT
Anyone too lazy to hack tcpdump (eg. my tcpdump has a -X option to display
the data in ASCII) can use something like the below to grab HTTP headers
when debugging broken clients.

Nothing complicated, but handy.

I usually just use this perl script, which I call "tcpdumpscii".
Then run "tcpdumpscii -s 1500 -x [other tcpdump args]".

#!/import/misc/bin/perl

open(TCPDUMP,"tcpdump -l @ARGV|");
while (<TCPDUMP>) {
	if (/^\s+(\S\S)+/) {
		$sav = $_;
		$asc = "";
		while (s/\s*(\S\S)\s*//) {
			$i = hex($1);
			if ($i < 32 || $i > 126) {
				$asc .= ".";
			} else {
				$asc .= pack(C,hex($1));
			}
		}
		$foo = "." x length($asc);
		$_ = $sav;
		s/\t/        /g;
		s/^$foo/$asc/;
	}
	print;
}
