On Windows functions in libwireshark.lib used by plugins must be exported trough libwireshark.def

I have Committed a change to do so in revision 25487.

Best regards

Ämne: [Wireshark-dev] Wireshark plugin restrictions? linker error


Hi all,


I'm trying to write a plugin dissector and sometimes get linker errors, that some function cannot be found...

(e.g. guint8 tvb_get_bits8( ) from tvbuff.h ). I was wondering if there are some restrictions and why this can happen if the

function from the example in the developers guide (guint8 tvb_get_guint8(tvbuff_t*, gint offset)) works fine...


Can anybody give me a hint? It is maybe something trivial...:/


Mit freundlichem Gruß / Best regards
