[Wireshark-dev] independent dissection of plug-ins

I am trying to dissect plug-ins in Wireshark independently without its
complete stack.

For example, if my plug-In is sitting in the following way



Internet Protocol



This is the usual way how Wireshark decodes my plug-in, now I tried to
decode my plug-in directly without its stack and succeeded by

Defining My-plug-in as DLT=147 in Wireshark -> Preferences -> DLT_USER
-> Edit window and also making some code changes in my-plug-in.


But, when I try to decode more than one my-plug-ins, with same DLT
(DLT=147), I couldn't able decode multiple plug-ins like that, but I can
able to define them under same DLT.

Is It that one pcap file only supports only one DLT? If yes what is the
best way to meet my requirement? I want to decode multiple plug-ins in
the same pcap file (without decoding the plug-ins complete stack)
