idl2eth



SYNOPSYS

       idl2eth filename


DESCRIPTION

       idl2eth is a program that takes a user specified CORBA IDL
       file and generates "C" source code for an Ethereal "plu­
       gin".

       This resulting file can be compiled as an Ethereal plugin,
       and used to monitor GIOP/IIOP traffic that is using this
       IDL.

       idl2eth is actually a shell script wrapper for two Python
       programs.

       These programs are:

           ethereal_be.py  - Contains the main IDL Visitor Class

           ethereal_gen.py - Contains the Source Code Generator
           Class

           idl2eth supports heuristic dissection of GIOP/IIOP
           traffic, and some experimental code for explicit dis­
           section, based on Object Key <-> Repository Id map­
           ping.  However, code for heuristic based plugins is
           generated by default, and users should consider this
           the preferred method unless you have some namespace
           collisions.


OPTIONS

       Currently there are no options. idl2eth can be invoked as
       follows.

       1.  To write the C code to stdout.

           idl2eth  <your_file.idl>

           eg: idl2eth echo.idl

       2. To write to a file, just redirect the output.

           idl2eth echo.idl > packet-test.c


ENVIRONMENT

       idl2eth will look for ethereal_be.py and ethereal_gen.py
       in $PYTHONPATH/site-packages/ and if not found, will try
       the current directory ./

       The -p option passed to omniidl (inside idl2eth) indicates
       where ethereal_be.py and ethereal_gen.py will be searched.
       This may need tweaking if you place these files somewhere
       Ethereal can be found at http://www.ethereal.com.

       idl2eth uses omniidl, and IDL parser, and can be found at
       http://www.uk.research.att.com/omniORB/omniORB.html


TODO

       Some of the more important things to do are:

       * Improve Explicit dissection code.
       * Improve command line options.
       * Improve decode algorithm when we have operation name
       collision.
