[Snort-users] Newbie question regarding libpcap

Really basic one here :-)

I appear to be able to run several libpcap-compiled sniffer programs
simultaneously on my workstation (e.g. snort and ethereal). Is that because
wonderous libpcap "allows" that to happen, or is doing such a thing likely
to lead to packet loss, etc?
