Parsing tcpdump output file


Hello everyone. I need help parsing tcpdump output. I want to get amount of transferred and received data in bytes from tcpdump output. Can anybody help me with that? Maybe tcpdump doesn't provide such information, or maybe i just couldn't find it?
Yeah and one more thing, what is "Content-Length" in tcpdump output file?
Thanks, Ed.
