Outdated egg!

This is an egg for CHICKEN 4, the unsupported old release. You're almost certainly looking for the CHICKEN 5 version of this egg, if it exists.

If it does not exist, there may be equivalent functionality provided by another egg; have a look at the egg index. Otherwise, please consider porting this egg to the current version of CHICKEN.



A pure scheme ethernet frame parser/unparser.

Currently in beta - not ready for production.

Requires the defstruct egg.


Provides an ethernet frame data structure (destination MAC, source MAC, 802.1q, ethertype and payload). Also provides read-ethernet-frame function which reads an ethernet frame and creates an ethernet frame data structure as well as the inverse write-ethernet-frame function.
