snort_inline library

"snort -dev" captures network packets using the 'libpcap' library. I wanted to know if this is true for snort_inline, too. Does "snort_inline -dev" receive network packets using 'libpcap', or 'libipq'?

Snort-inline is still snort, but with blocking capability. Snort-inline still sniffs in the same manner as Snort does, from my understanding of things. The quick way to find out is to run Snort-inline and grep for libipq when using lsof ("lsof | grep snort | grep libipq" should work).
