Declare it wherever you want. You just need to export the symbol in case you want to use it in different libraries (like wiretap and epan/dissectors). Do a search for WS_VAR_IMPORT to see examples.

Pascal.

>> Assuming you work on the master branch (Wireshark 1.11.X), if you want to use in libwireshark a variable defined in libwiretap, you should export the symbol with the WS_DLL_PUBLIC macro instead of using extern. Do not forget to include ws_symbol_export.h file also.
