Title: How to check whether a plugin is installed from inside a dissector ?

Hi all,

I am currently trying to decode the IEEE 802.16E TLV's that WIMAXASNCP is unable to, and I found out that the corresponding TLV's are already dissected in the Intel WiMAX plugin.

I have been trying to link up the two plugins so that the IEEE specified TLV's are dissected in WIMAXASNCP plugin using the functions available in the WIMAX plugin, while they still retain the necessary independence from each other.

For this, I am thinking of decoding only if I find a given plugin installed.Is there any way to check from inside a dissector whether a plugin is installed or not?
