Hi I would like to make a script in linux to do merge or connect 15 smaller files into one big pcap file. I have created the linux script to find the required files and store them in a matrix oldest file in the beginning and newest file at the end of the matrix. Will mergecap command without "-a" option solve this?? The program that reads the final pcap file should be able to read it and parse it just like if it were the same 15 files.
