tcpflow is a program that captures data transmitted as part of TCP
connections (flows), and stores the data in a way that is convenient
for protocol analysis or debugging. A program like 'tcpdump' shows a
summary of packets seen on the wire, but usually doesn't store the
data that's actually being transmitted. In contrast, tcpflow
reconstructs the actual data streams and stores each flow in a
separate file for later analysis.
My build script was broken, updated srpm url:
Small note to myself: update wishlist if packages gets included:
I don't like the additions of features that haven't been
already accepted by upstream. In that case, upstream doesn't
seems to be updating frequently, so it may be right.
* rpmlint is silent
* follow guidelines
* free software, license included
* match upstream
* %file section right.
If you care, you can keep the man page timestamp by adding
INSTALL='install -p' or similar on the make install line.
Seems to me that license is GPL+.
