Never mind!  When I switched to printf it worked fine.
Thanks again

OK the console window pops up just fine, but my g_printf's aren't showing up there.
Do I need to use fprintf and specify stdout?  Or is there a wireshark-specific print function I should be using?  (I'm running on Windows.)

That's exactly what I was looking for!  I don't even have to recompile Wireshark.  ;)
Thank you very much.

You haven't said what platform you are developing on, but perhaps
changing the Wireshark User Interface Preference of "Open a console
window" from the default on "Never" to "Automatic (advanced user)"
or even "Always (debugging)" would provide the console window you

It works for me when working in C.

I typically run my Wireshark instanaces with Console mode set to "Always".
If and when the console window is created, you will be required to also
click on and close the console the console window to  completely shutdown

I hope this proves helpful.
