Re: Finding init.lua after build from source

Hi Tony,

 Thanks, with your help I generated an init.lua file.

 I also added dofile('plugins/mydissector.lua') to the end, to run my dissector. However, now I'm not sure that it is 
getting loaded.

 I placed it in the build directory, and then I run WIRESHARK_RUN_FROM_BUILD_DIRECTORY=1 ./wireshark, but my dissector 
doesn't seem to be loaded. I also try inserting blatant syntax errors into init.lua but no error is generated.

 I have also tried installing and placing init.lua in the "global config dir" (which for me is apparently 
/usr/local/share/wireshark/), but same (lack of) result.

 If you could be so kind as to give me another pointer that would be great.

The script takes two parameters:

  make-init-lua.pl<http://make-init-lua.pl> $SRC $TEMPLATE

  $SRC is the root of the wireshark source directory, and
  $TEMPLATE is the path to template-init.lua (in the same directory as make-init-lua.pl<http://make-init-lua.pl>).

The result is printed to stdout, so you could redirect it to a file.

  $ ./make-init-lua.pl<http://make-init-lua.pl> ../.. template-init.lua > init.lua
