Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Loading value_string from file?

The diameter dissector builds value strings from file. The sminpec value string is built from a script. 

Den 15 feb. 2017 2:47 em skrev "Peter Wu" <[email protected]>:

While many protocols have fixed value_string mappings, some of them are
quite dynamic (USB Vendor/Product IDs, "enterprise-numbers" (sminmpec),
services, etc.).

Has there ever been an attempt to load these from file? This has the
benefit that these files can be updated without having to
rebuild/install a new version of Wireshark. (Additional benefits: the
data can be compressed and ignored from Lintian spell-checking.)
Kind regards,
Peter Wu
