Thanx for the suggestion, I went through the directory which provides very very minimal information its like hardly 20 lines written there that does not suffice for my query.

kindly suggest some more ways to get that understanding. What I actually wana know is the all protocol information is displayed uding a tree so somewhere that tree is made by taking some kinda buffer. where are these maintained,i will go through the code more once i get the initial point.

The "doc" directory in the wireshark distribution has lots of good
info. Look at README.design, for example.
