I'm thinking of adding XML dictionary file support to the IPFIX dissector, similar in concept to the Diameter dictionary. It appears Wireshark's Diameter dictionary reader uses flex/bison to parse the XML, and I'm curious if that's what we're supposed to use for such things in Wireshark? I'd prefer to just use Glib's GMarkupParser, or libxml2 which I think is included in wireshark builds (right?), because I'm not familiar with flex/bison or lex/yacc. But if there's some specific reason flex/bison should be used, I can go learn how to use them.
Is there a reason for using flex/bison for that?
