Using with C++

I recently came across Pcap.Net while searching something related to WinPcap and found that it is very interesting. I am trying to use Pcap.Net with Visual C++ instead of C#. However, I am not sure on how to use the library correctly.

In C# we have (sample code)

using PcapDotNet.Core;

PcapDotNet.Analysis.PcapDotNetAnalysis.OptIn = true;



How should i accomplish this in VC++? Is it something like this?


#include <PcapDotNet.Core>

PcapDotNet->Analysis->PcapDotNetAnalysis->OptIn = true;



I hope someone could clarify these minor things. The rest would be easy as there is a good documentation on using the classes. I noticed all documentation are written in C#. Thank you.

Hi valthyx,


I suggest learning the basic syntax of C++/CLI.

For example, you can access sub namespaces, inner classes or static methods using double colon ("::") instead of a period (".").


I hope this helps,
