Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] ASN1-based dissector as plugin

OK, I have added a page and some code to show how it works. The new page is and it works under Linux, but I'm still working on a Windows version. The makefiles are somewhat byzantine. Comments, complaints, suggestions welcome.

�mne: [Wireshark-dev] ASN1-based dissector as plugin

I've been working on an ASN.1-based dissector lately and got impatient with the slow modify-compile-test cycling, so I have changed it to be an ASN.1-based plugin dissector. I am thinking this technique might be of general use to those building such dissectors, so perhaps a simple sample along these lines would be something I could contribute.

So I have two questions for the group:
1. is this of interest to anyone but me?
2. would an addition to the wiki be the best way to contribute this?
