Capinfos is able to detect and read the same capture files that are supported by Wireshark. The input files don't need a specific filename extension; the file format and an optional gzip compression will be automatically detected. Near the beginning of the DESCRIPTION section of wireshark(1) or <https://www.wireshark.org/docs/man-pages/wireshark.html> is a detailed description of the way Wireshark handles this, which is the same way Capinfos handles this.
HTML versions of the Wireshark project man pages are available at: <https://www.wireshark.org/docs/man-pages>.
