How to get the capture’s path?


Hi, I am trying to get the path of the opened pcap file from a Lua dissector in order to write a text file there inside. So how could I get this path? Is there any non-method function?

[This is an old question, but I didn't see it until now.]

There is no current method to do that that I know of, but it's a good suggestion for an enhancement - so I've submitted bug 11316 to track it.
