what is the method of reading the data in a packet using Libpcap

what is the method of reading the data in a packet using Libpcap ??

Actually i am working for my miniproject. It is about detecting spambots.

For that i need to read the packets that are being sent as requests to the web server. I am able to catch the packet, but when i try to read the data after jumping over the headers i find data that is not decipherable. Not that the data is encrypted, Because the data is for a file a text file that i requested on the LAN.

Please guide me.....
thanx in advance.....
awaiting a reply.........
