Hi Martin,

It look good for me.

But you need to remove "ftp_data_tree = proto_item_add_subtree(ti, ett_ftp_data);", it is no longer use !

Also why use ftp and ftp-data, it is not better to use a ftp.data (filter) ? (and known ftp and ftp-data is not the same protocol...)

I think I'd like to change it to what the attached patch does.

i.e. have a quick look to see if the first few characters are printable.
- if yes, show the string (but as before not formatting more text than will be used)
- if no, just add the details of how many bytes are in the segment
In both cases, I append the details to the ftp-data root itself, rather than make that awkward call to proto_item_add_text().  This saves you opening up the tree (there is now nothing inside it).  And you can still make expressions like:
      ftp-data contains "PASS" 
      ftp-data contains 00:01:02

Unless anyone feels strongly about it I'll submit this in a day or 2.

Maybe just calling packet-data is the right way to go here?

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
