>From reading the rawshark(1) manpage my assumption was that rawshark
could be used like
$ /usr/bml/bin/rawshark -s -r test.pcap -d encap:EN10MB ...

However rawshark either expects the -r argument to be -
(read from stdin) or a pipe which results in the following error
message:

rawshark: ".../test.pcap" is neither an interface nor a pipe

The proposed rawshark.pod patch updates the -r description to
the implemented rawshark functionality.

The patch also applies to the current SVN version.
