Detailed Description

Represents a generic or unknown layer or a packet payload

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ PayloadLayer() [1/3]

pcpp::PayloadLayer::PayloadLayer ( uint8_t *  data,
size_t  dataLen,
Layer prevLayer,
Packet packet 

A constructor that creates the layer from an existing packet raw data

[in]dataA pointer to the raw data
[in]dataLenSize of the data in bytes
[in]prevLayerA pointer to the previous layer
[in]packetA pointer to the Packet instance where layer will be stored in

◆ PayloadLayer() [2/3]

pcpp::PayloadLayer::PayloadLayer ( const uint8_t *  data,
size_t  dataLen,
bool  dummy 

A constructor that allocates a new payload

[in]dataA raw buffer that will be used as a payload. This data will be copied to the layer
[in]dataLenThe raw buffer length
[in]dummyA dummy parameter to separate the constructor signature from the other constructor. Its value isn't used anywhere

◆ PayloadLayer() [3/3]

pcpp::PayloadLayer::PayloadLayer ( const std::string &  payloadAsHexStream)

A constructor that allocates a new payload from an hex stream

[in]payloadAsHexStreamA string that represents an hex stream of the payload. For example: 0001080006040002842b2b774c56c0a80078000000000000c0a8. In order for the hex stream to be valid it has to contain valid hex chars only (which means, for example, that it can't begin with "0x") and it also has to have an even number of chars (each char represents one nibble). If the string is not a valid hex stream an error will be printed to log and the payload layer will be empty (no data)

Member Function Documentation

◆ computeCalculateFields()

void pcpp::PayloadLayer::computeCalculateFields ( )

Does nothing for this layer

Implements pcpp::Layer.

◆ getHeaderLen()

size_t pcpp::PayloadLayer::getHeaderLen ( ) const
Payload data length in bytes

Implements pcpp::Layer.

◆ getOsiModelLayer()

OsiModelLayer pcpp::PayloadLayer::getOsiModelLayer ( ) const
The OSI Model layer this protocol belongs to

Implements pcpp::Layer.

◆ getPayload()

uint8_t* pcpp::PayloadLayer::getPayload ( ) const

Get a pointer to the payload data

A pointer to the payload data

◆ getPayloadLen()

size_t pcpp::PayloadLayer::getPayloadLen ( ) const

Get the payload data length

The payload data length in bytes

◆ parseNextLayer()

void pcpp::PayloadLayer::parseNextLayer ( )

Does nothing for this layer (PayloadLayer is always last)

Implements pcpp::Layer.

◆ setPayload()

void pcpp::PayloadLayer::setPayload ( const uint8_t *  newPayload,
size_t  newPayloadLength 

Sets the payload of the PayloadLayer to the given pointer. This will resize (extend/shorten) the underlying packet respectively if there is one.

[in]newPayloadNew payload that shall be set
[in]newPayloadLengthNew length of payload

◆ toString()

std::string pcpp::PayloadLayer::toString ( ) const
A string representation of the layer most important data (should look like the layer description in Wireshark)

Implements pcpp::Layer.
