Python documentation said AF_PACKET exists, but when I looked at the python script it was missing on Mac and Windows. I'm currently on Windows.

According to the documentation at <https://docs.python.org/3.8/library/socket.html#socket.AF_PACKET> and Issue 25041 it is only available on Linux. What documentation are you looking at?

I've put up the PR here that makes availability clearer in the docs: https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/27519/files
