I am using tshark to do a live capture in a terminal. Unfortunately
tshark occasionally prints out the current packet count on stderr,
messing up the alignment of the summary lines and thus making them
harder to read.

I have found this commit which sounds like it should prevent that, but
for some reason it doesn't seem to work:


The code doesn't seem to take effect at all as even if I redirect stderr
to a file the packet count still ends up in it. I am using version
1.10.6 on Debian, so unless I'm missing something that code should be



Hi Jan,

the commit you are referring to is only present in the development branch,
and not in the 1.10.X branch. You might want to give a try to the 1.11.2
development build found on Wireshark website (or a more recent bleeding
edge nightly build found here: http://www.wireshark.org/download/automated/).
