I have to think about whether I´ll use Java (parsing XML is in Java easier), C (perfect if I´ll implement my new capture file in ws) or Python (but I am not familiar with Python) to write this program.

Hi Chris,

just use a shell command like
$ for f in /tmp/test*.xml; do od -Ax -tx1 -v $f; done | text2pcap -l 151 - /tmp/test.pcap
after you have set the payload_proto of USER DLT 4 (= 151) via Preferences -> Protocols
-> DLT User to xml and check whether the result in Wireshark suits your XML parsing
requirements.

Reinhard
