NAMEidl2wrs - CORBA IDL to Wireshark Plugin Generator
DESCRIPTIONidl2wrs is a program that takes a user specified
This resulting file can be compiled as a Wireshark plugin, and used to monitor
idl2wrs is actually a shell script wrapper for two Python programs. These programs are:
Contains the mainIDLVisitor Class
Contains the Source Code Generator Class
idl2wrs supports heuristic dissection of
OPTIONSCurrently there are no options. idl2wrs can be invoked as follows.
1. To write the C code to stdout.
idl2wrs <your_file.idl> eg: idl2wrs echo.idl
2. To write to a file, just redirect the output.
idl2wrs echo.idl > packet-test.c
ENVIRONMENTidl2wrs will look for wireshark_be.py and wireshark_gen.py in $PYTHONPATH/site-packages/ and if not found, will try the current directory ./
The -p option passed to omniidl (inside idl2wrs) indicates where wireshark_be.py and wireshark_gen.py will be searched. This may need tweaking if you place these files somewhere else.
If it complains about being unable to find some modules (eg tempfile.py), you may want to check if

NOTESidl2wrs (including wireshark_be.py and wireshark_gen.py) are part of the Wireshark distribution. The latest version of Wireshark can be found at <www.wireshark.org>.
idl2wrs uses omniidl, an
TODOSome of the more important things to do are:
- Improve Explicit dissection code.
- Improve command line options.
- Improve decode algorithm when we have operation name collision.
