nd_misc_ones_complement_checksum ()

int         nd_misc_ones_complement_checksum
                                            (const void *data,
                                             int data_len,
                                             u_int32_t sum);

The function computes the ones-complement checksum of the data pointed to by data. If you want to extend the checksum over data areas not included in data, you can pre-add the sum of that data in units of short ints (16bit) and pass it as sum.

nd_misc_in_cksum ()

u_short     nd_misc_in_cksum                ();

The function computes the Internet checksum of addr. Other data can be included in the checksum by pre-added the sum if that data in units of short ints (16bit) and passing it as preadd.

nd_misc_exists ()

gboolean    nd_misc_exists                  (const char *filename);

The function checks whether filename exists and returns the result.

nd_misc_can_read ()

gboolean    nd_misc_can_read                (const char *filename);

The function checks whether filename can be read and returns the result.

nd_misc_is_tcpdump_file ()

gboolean    nd_misc_is_tcpdump_file         (const char *filename);

The function checks whether filename is a tcpdump savefile by looking for tcpdump's magic 0xa1b2c3d4 and its variations.

nd_misc_can_exec ()

gboolean    nd_misc_can_exec                (const char *filename);

The function checks whether filename can be executed and returns the result.

nd_misc_is_dir ()

gboolean    nd_misc_is_dir                  (const char *filename);

The function checks whether filename is a directory and returns the result.

nd_misc_int_cmp ()

gint        nd_misc_int_cmp                 (gconstpointer int1,
                                             gconstpointer int2);

This is a simple compare function for pointers that can be casted (not dereferenced!) to ints, returning -1/0/1 of row1 is smaller/ equal/larger than row2. The signature allows usage with various glib functions.

nd_misc_add_slash ()

char*       nd_misc_add_slash               (char *filename);

The function checks if filename ends with a slash and if not, reallocs the memory filename uses and appends a slash.

nd_misc_get_if_names ()

GList*      nd_misc_get_if_names            (int flags);

The function returns an alphabetically ordered glib list of strings containing the names of those network interfaces that satisfy the given flag combination.

nd_misc_get_if_mtu ()

int         nd_misc_get_if_mtu              (const char *ifname);

The function returns the MTU for a given interface. I have no idea whether this compiles on anything non-Linux ...

nd_misc_get_hardware_string ()

void        nd_misc_get_hardware_string     (char *str,
                                             guint str_len,
                                             guchar *address,
                                             guint addr_len);

The function places into the space pointed to by str a string representing the hardware address as "xx : xx : ... : xx".

nd_misc_get_unnamed_string ()

char*       nd_misc_get_unnamed_string      (void);

The function returns a pointer to statically allocated data that gets filled with a numbered dummy file name. You need to strdup() the pointer if you want to keep it around.
