len - Checks the string length of "string types" (FT_STRING, FT_STRINGZ, FT_UINT_STRING, FT_STRINGZPAD) or array length of "byte types" (FT_BYTES, FT_UINT_BYTES) and does a compare.

len(smpp.message_id)  > 10
len(smpp.message) > 25

size - Checks the size of the field in a packet.  Can be used for strings/bytes like len() above, but can also be used for integer fields that vary in length (1-4 bytes)

size(eth.type) == 2       (This is just for demonstration purposes.  Obviously the size of the eth.type field could only be 2 but I couldn't quickly think of a "popular" field with varying integer length)    
size(tcp.options) > 7

count - Number of times a field is found in a single frame.  This can be used to help identify "tunneling" or if multiple PDUs are in a single frame.

count(ip.src) > 1
count(smpp.sequence_number) > 1    (Since sequence_number is required for the packet, having more than one shows frames with multiple PDUs.

Subject: [Wireshark-dev] dfilter functions

I've noticed that the online documentation about dfilter functions just talks about 2 of them, upper and lower:

but there are more that are undocumented AFAICS:

- len
- size
- count

Can someone explain me their purpose and give a working example on some protocol?
