Hi. Here's a patch that adds some low-level networking thingies
(Ethernet, IP & UDP packet parsing; ability to read raw packets
and use normal DatagramProtocols with them).
I'm submitting it for review at an early stage so you can all
bash me to dea^W^W^W^Wgive me guidance on how to build it.
Especially look at what I did with AbstractDatagramProtocol,
how the classes interact, etc.
Future work: maybe checksum verification and such
details. TUN/TAP interface. Pcap interface, if I can avoid
writing C and still make it compatible. Worlds slowest network
And yes, I know about scapy. It's a nice hack and a useful
tool, but doesn't really provide an API to program on. Personally,
I think a twistedy low-level networking library would be a good
ground to write a small UI app that does what scapy does. And
if you do that, please call it twisted.pair :)
...well, the patch for too big. See
