Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] Where do I get gmodule.h for dissector development

I want to write a dissector and I am trying to work through the example “packet-foo” from the documentation.


I downloaded the Windows binary distribution for WireShark 00.99.4 , as I only want to write a plugin and don’t wish to build the entire program.

The install worked perfectly and I can capture packets on the network.

However the “packet-foo” example requires include files that don’t come with the binary distribution e.g.



# include "config.h"



#include <gmodule.h>

#include <epan/packet.h>

#include <epan/prefs.h>


I then used SVN to checkout release 00.99.4 of the source, to match the binary I had obtained previously.

This seems to contain packet.h and prefs.h but not gmodule.h


Can anybody tell me where I can get gmodule.h ?


Also there is a file config.h.win32 which I presume I should use as config.h can somebody confirm this.
