Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Add the next Tvb packet to current tvb before dissecting

The displayed error says that tvb_set_child_real_data_tvbuff returns void (nothing).
See epan/tvbuff.h
So you are trying : next_tvb=void

Other thing :
I do not understand why you are trying to do reassembly by yourself since this is the goal of tcp_dissect_pdus.

Good day

I would like to get some assistance if anyone out there can.

I am working a plugin dissector that handles data from an asynchronous source. The asynchronous source first sends a packet with just the message length of the next packet which contains the real data.
What i would love to do is to keep this packet with just the length of 
the next packet and append to it the next packet before I proceed with 
I have tried using the tcp_dissect_pdus and the longer reassembly 
method but I get this error using both methods:
error: void value not ignored as it ought to be

for this line


I'm not sure what it is that I'm doing wrong

And if there is a simpler way of just adding the next tvb without going the reassemble route I would like to use that one
Thank you

Good day
