Ah, thanks Jeff; I understand now. I checked (http://library.gnome.org/devel/glib/unstable/glib-Simple-XML-Subset-Parser.html) and it suggests it has been around since version 2.16... so I guess it is OK to use it.

Thanks for your help!
Abhik.

Hi Abhik,

Sorry, I guess I mean: what is the earliest version of glib that
supports the APIs you're talking about?

For Windows we don't have a problem because we distribute glib with
Wireshark, but all other OS's rely on the currently-installed glib.
"configure.in" currently enforces glib > 2.4 .  Increasing that may be
OK but of course it means some number of people will have to go upgrade
their glib (so doing it shouldn't be taken lightly).

Regards,
Jeff
