Hello all,
I am using Bro 1.5.  When i was using bro without support for   CISCO HDLC
data link type ,  I executed the cammand ,

linux-oxtm:~ # bro -r /usr/local/bro/090500-0-anon.pcap

It gives me following error.

  bro: problem with trace file /usr/local/bro/090500-0-anon.pcap   - unknown
data link type 0x68

After that on the suggestion of my friend JUSTIN AZOFF  made changes in
Src/Pktsrc.cc and added support . CISCO HDLC uses the offset for data  5.

Then I executed the same command
linux-oxtm:~ # bro -r /usr/local/bro/090500-0-anon.pcap

The previous error gets vanished, and i get the different results, It a long
listing  so i pasted few lines.
