dfilter2sgml patched to handle DOCSIS

Hi Anand,
I'm writing this to you as you seem to be the DOCSIS dissector guy.
My recent patch fixes handling of the new DOCSIS stuff in
the user guide build processing, see the thread

[PATCH] -G option & doc/dfilter... change to include hfinfo->blurb

on ethereal-dev [epan/proto.c & doc/dfilter2pod.pl changes]/
ethereal-doc[dfilter2sgml changes], yet I got no feedback on it so far.
Perhaps if you could check it works indeed for you & then confirm
it on the list, it will expedite the patch acceptance?

Right now the user guide build from the most recent CVS
ethereal's -G output is broken on the DOCSIS sections.

Re: dfilter2sgml patched to handle DOCSIS [In reply to]

Hi Vassilli,
My apologies, I must have missed that thread. I just looked at the man
pages generated from the CVS build and it seems that the DOCSIS stuff is
all there. Do you have a copy of the patch and can you point me to how I
can verify if it fixes the user guide?

Sorry for being a bit clueless...

dfilter2sgml patched to handle DOCSIS [In reply to]

No apologies needed - I'm aware that most of the work effort is
concentrated on real
dissecting issues and hence the doc-related things tend to get
overlooked. I'm in the docs
myself just because I am a newbie in ethereal-dev so I started looking
in the docs more
than an avg developer :-)

1) You can verify the bug by setting up the ethereal-doc env,
and then (using the latest CVS ethereal)
do a manual
ethereal -G | ./dfilter2sgml sgml.doc.template >
ug-src/filter-fields.sgml
in the ethereal-doc tree, and then perform a make. It is broken for me
because of DOCSIS autogenerated entries.

2) My patch consists of 2 parts.

First thing you have to do is to apply my patch from
http://www.ethereal.com/lists/ethereal-dev/200208/msg00121.html
in the 'ethereal' cvs module environment, and compile that.
Its portion applying to doc/dfilter2sgml is irrelevant - turns out
ethereal-doc has a more recent copy of the same script.
This will expand ethereal -G output to include the 'blurb'.
If you build this, you'll see more verbose ethereal/tethereal manpages.

Next, apply the patch from
http://www.ethereal.com/lists/ethereal-doc/200208/msg00001.html
in the 'ethereal-doc' cvs module environment, and proceed
as per the instructions in (1) above to re-test the user guide build -
it should work now - both with the DOCSIS breakage fix
and with more verbose tables - with a 4th column 'Description'
to include the hfinfo->blurb.

3a) If it doesn't work for you, bug me!
3b) If it does, use your good name around here to ask the busy
guys responsible for the check-ins to please apply the patches in the
cvs env;
as well as resolve the cvs adm. issues raised in the above linked
message from ethereal-doc.

:-)))

Kind regards,
Vassilii

Re: dfilter2sgml patched to handle DOCSIS [In reply to]

Vassilii,
Sorry... It's taken a while to get this done. I noticed that Guy checked
in your patch so I decided to pull down the latest CVS source and test it
with that. After spending a few minutes getting db2pdf installed on my
system, I noticed that I am still seeing the problems with the DOCSIS
source. Here's the make_user-guide.log:

Using catalogs: /etc/sgml/sgml-docbook-4.1.cat
Using stylesheet: /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.9/docbook-utils.dsl#print
Working on: /home/docsis/ethereal-doc/user-guide.sgml
jade:/home/docsis/ethereal-doc/./ug-src/filter-fields.sgml:7065:13:E:
character "'" is not allowed in the value of attribute "ID"
jade:/home/docsis/ethereal-doc/./ug-src/filter-fields.sgml:7067:11:E:
character "'" is not allowed in the value of attribute "ID"

I looked at the two offending entries in filter-fields.sgml and removed the
's from the ID fields it compiles fine. I'm not sure if you want me to
modify the string in the disector or if you want to modify the script that
generates the filter-fields.sgml file. Let me know if there's anything I
can do...

RE: Re: dfilter2sgml patched to handle DOCSIS [In reply to]

Hi Anand,
thanks for your retesting attempts.
I have just reviewed the exact contents of what had been checked
in by Guy yesterday. It turns out that the patch
against the 'ethereal-doc' version of dfilter2sgml wasn't applied,
and hence you are still having your problem.

Anand+Guy: Attached is the rediffed remaining portion of the patch,
to be applied against the current ethereal-doc/dfilter2sgml.
For retesting (works here!), proceed from (2') below using the
attached patch.

Guy: maybe you'd like to eliminate the orphaned clone of dfilter2sgml
from ethereal/doc/, or at least make it a link to
ethereal-doc/dfilter2sgml.

Kind regards,
Vassilii

What I'd like to do is to get either Richard Sharpe or Ed Warnicke to do
it, as I think Richard's the creator of dfilter2sgml, and they're the
maintainers of the Ethereal manuals.

Richard and Ed: if the copy in the Ethereal source tree isn't being
used, please apply Vassilii's changes to the "ethereal-doc" copy, and
nuke the "ethereal/doc" copy. If the copy in the "ethereal-doc" source
tree isn't being used, please nuke it. If *both* copies are being used,
please sync them up (there are other differences).

RE: Re: dfilter2sgml patched to handle DOCSIS [In reply to]

Thanks for the yesterday's check-in. I updated from the cvs and
tested locally, it works here.

Now I am looking at the links from the homepage at
http://www.ethereal.com/, in the "Documentation" section,
and the manpages and the user guide there seem not to have
been rebuilt for quite a while!

Also, the manpages and the user guide seem to originate from
different ethereal versions (0.8.13 vs. 0.8.19).

Can you please regenerate them? Make sure you rebuild the
filter-fields.sgml document from the new ethereal before you proceed...
