Some very basic questions, hope you don't mind my asking them...

Where can I find a recent HOWTO on writing your own dissector for a
proprietary protocol? Is there some basic roadmap that can help me keep
an overview and not lose the way?

When I have finished writing it, how do I easily share my dissector?
Does everyone who wants to use it need to recompile their Wireshark? Any
important Windows/Linux differences? (I'll need to support both

Thanks for the info!
