Net::Analysis::EventLoop - generate a stream of packets

 use Net::Analysis::Dispatcher;
 use Net::Analysis::EventLoop;
 my ($d)  = Net::Analysis::Dispatcher->new();
 my ($el) = Net::Analysis::EventLoop->new (dispatcher => $d);
 ... register some listener modules onto the dispatcher ...
 # Now run it over a file ...
 $el->loop_file (filename => 'some.tpcdump');
 # ... or run it over many files ...
 $d->emit_event (name => 'setup'); # need to handle setup/teardown by hand
 foreach (qw(file1 file2 ...)) {
   $el->loop_file (filename => $_, no_setup_teardown => 1);
 }
 $d->emit_event (name => 'teardown');
 # ... or try live capture (using the same filter syntax as tcpdump et al)
 $el->loop_net (filter => 'port 80');
 exit 0;

This module provides the glue between the main dispatcher/listener stuff, and the underlying source of packets.
It gets packets (currently via the NetPacket layer on top of Net::Pcap), turns them into Net::Analysis::Packets, and then dispatches them to any listeners who care about 'tcp_packets'.
Current limitations:
Only TCP packets are handled
It's not designed to be fast; don't run on GB files unless you're about to go home. Live capture on busy servers may not be the best either; make the most specific filter you can, to allow Net::Pcap to reduce the number of packets that get to here. And watch your memory; it's likely to leak.
Live capture is not perfectly integrated; there is no way to cleanly stop capture at this time.

None by default.
