Hi,
Does the file packet-foo.h exist in epan/dissectors?

I have the following error while compiling each time my dissector using 'make' command.

make[5]: Entering directory `/home/nileshnayak/Desktop/wireshark-1.10.5/epan/dissectors'
make[5]: *** No rule to make target `packet-foo.h', needed by `all-am'.  Stop.

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

make: *** [all] Error 2



Couldn't really figure out what the problem is actually..
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,

So why do a plugin?  Just write a normal new dissector.

Regardless, the doc to read is this: doc/README.dissector

That explains a lot, in detail; and of course you should also look at some existing packet-* files in epan/dissectors.  
For UDP, packet-stun.c or packet-ntp.c are a relatively small ones.

So, basically I want to build a basic wireshark dissector and try to capture the packets using my own customised 
protocol name.
Example : I have a protocol of my own, lets name it as "foo" protocol. Now, I want to create a dissector for it like 
packet-<protocolname>.c and  packet-<protocolname>.h as source header files.

Underlying the protocol, I am capturing UDP packets. But if I set the capture filter as "foo", then I should be able 
to capture "foo" packets.
Could you please send me some good tutorials over the same?

I have already read the README.developer and README.pluggins docs.


And yes, I am adding a new protocol dissector in the wireshark source code itself and then building the environment 
and compiling.

Thanks and Regards,
Nilesh
