Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Using DISSECTOR_SUPPORT_SRC

I think the problem is that you are trying to extern a static variable. Static variable has a scope in its own file and can't be accessed anywhere else...

I have a perfectly working dissector, but I wanted to move a very
large struct I have in it into its own C file. So I moved it (still
keeping it static), declared an extern to it in the original file, and
added the new c file to DISSECTOR_SUPPORT_SRC in Makefile.common in my
plugin's directory. After (re)compiling wireshark, I get an undefined
symbol error at runtime referencing this moved struct. So I tried
moving the filename into DISSECTOR_SRC instead, and this also failed
with the same error. Clearly I am doing something wrong.

Have I missed a necessary file that I need to edit? Or am I going
about this the completely wrong way?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
