Declare it wherever you want. You just need to export the symbol in case
you want to use it in different libraries (like wiretap and
epan/dissectors). Do a search for WS_VAR_IMPORT to see examples.

If i define the  variable in the wireshark directory and i use it in the
/wiretap and  /epan/dissectors whether or not should i use the
 WS_DLL_PUBLIC macro,and by the way i use the wireshark 1.6.5 edition,then
what should i do.

If you use Wireshark 1.6.5 source code, you must declare your structure
as WS_VAR_IMPORT instead of extern, and add it to wtap.def file. Something
WS_VAR_IMPORT performance* performance_test;

and in wtap.def:
performance_test DATA

You can look at other examples of the use of WS_VAR_IMPORT in the source


PS: there is no need to send multiple emails to the mailing list with the
same question over and over.

I want to store some information about packets and transmit among
files,so i create a file in wireshark root directory,named performance.h:

#include <glib.h>
typedef struct performance_s
gfloat time[100];
       gfloat delay[100];
guint32 packetSize[100];
guint32 payload;
guint32 index;
guint32 temp_size;
gfloat temp_time;
extern peformance* performance_test;

in the file ,i declare a struct and declare a pointer to it,then i
want to use the variable "performance_test" in file wiretap/libpcap.c,
epan/dissectors/packet-ieee80211.c,so i define the variable
"peformance_test" in performance.c in wireshark root directory  and include
the head file in wiretap/libpcap.c, epan/dissectors/packet-ieee80211.c ,but
once i use the variable in these two files,when i compile the wireshark
project,it come up with one error:undefined reference to 'peformance_test'.

it looks like the variable peformance_test should be defined and used
in the same file ,if i want to use it in different files,i think i should
modify the makefile.common to change the compile process ,but i don't know
how .could someone help me fix it,please!


Assuming you work on the master branch (Wireshark 1.11.X), if you want
to use in libwireshark a variable defined in libwiretap, you should export
the symbol with the WS_DLL_PUBLIC macro instead of using extern. Do not
forget to include ws_symbol_export.h file also.
You can search in the code for examples of the use of this macro.
