Wireshark-users: Re: [Wireshark-users] [HELP] How to send bytes to wireshark on runtime

I above examples it is said that wireshark can read the pcap file from the pipe. The problem with me is I am receiving hex bytes....how can I convert it to pcap format at runtime...?

I don't think wireshark will be able to read hex dump from the pipe interface.

The current pcap interface splits the process of starting a live
capture into:

       a call to create a capture handle;

       various calls to set various properties on the handle;

       a call to activate the handle.

There is currently not a call to set a channel on which to capture,
but at some point one will be added to handle 802.11; such a call
could be used on other network types.
