About Dissector added with a "plugin" !

Hi,

I'm developping an Ethereal plugin to add a dissector for a protocol.
This protocol has a field Mask that I would like to display in binary e.g.
Mask : 1100 1011 1010
But I can't find the solution that allows such a thing :

In proto.c, one have :

/** radix for decimal values, used in header_field_info.display */
typedef enum {
BASE_NONE, /**< none */
BASE_DEC, /**< decimal */
BASE_HEX, /**< hexadecimal */
BASE_OCT, /**< octal */
BASE_DEC_HEX, /**< decimal (hexadecimal) */
BASE_HEX_DEC /**< hexadecimal (decimal) */
} base_display_e;

But there is no BASE_BIN for example, in order to insert into (e.g.):
static hf_register_info hf[] = {
{ &hf_foo_pdu_type,
{ "FOO PDU Type","foo.type",
FT_UINT8, BASE_DEC, NULL, 0x0,
"", HFILL }
},
};

Has someone a solution for this problem without I have to modify ethereal
source code and rebuild it ?

Re: About Dissector added with a "plugin" ! [In reply to]

Not exactly what you are asking for but you could try this:

(dissecting and displaying the top 12 bits of a 16 bit integer in a
somewhat binary representation)

{ &hf_foo,
{"Foo", "foo.foo", FT_UINT16, BASE_HEX, NULL, 0xfff0, "something", HFILL }},


I.e specifying a bitmask which will make ethereal decode it and display it as
XXXX XXXX XXXX ....


Probably not exactly what you want but maybe close enough?

try with
FT_UINT32 and BASE_HEX
instead of
FT_UINT8 and BASE_DEC
