say that it's possible. I'm doing a thesis work in the same direction, though
not using XML but a language I constructed for this (Yet Another Language, I
know... ;) and it's going quite well.
haven't announced this before, but as I'm near completion of the work (it's
probably nowhere near complete for advanced users (read developers), but still
something to prototype/not having to recompile all the time benefits) I think
it'd be ready for announcement anyway, Wireshark is open source after
I have been tasked to determine if
its possible to write a dynamic dissector for wireshark which reads an XML file
for the message structures/protocol information. I have been reading the
dev docs but havent really been able to affirm or deny the possibility. I
know RTFM is the best way, but with my big wig meeting coming up tomorrow.. I
wanted to ask the list and see what you guys had to say.
Thanks for reading and Im hoping
this worked out.. been using ethereal for years.. now to wireshark! I hope to be
able to finally contribute.
