Having zero knowledge of the original code here’s some remarks anyway.

This must be a general thing then? infile vs. infilename.

You meant to say _(“-W\t\tgenerate

You probably meant to say rpc_wireshark.c, Functions for the generation of a wireshark dissector in rpcgen


You might want to add a line stating the Wireshark release (2.0, 2.2, or other) this code is generated for, since the used APIs / includes may depend on it and they may change in the future.
