I'm developing a plug-in for Wireshark and I have dissected headers and trailers that belongs to my protocol. Now I want to dissect the data part of the packages. For this part I have a XML file that represent a description of it. It will tell where in the data part I can find different variables, their size in bits, their unit etc. So, I have some parts of the protocol that will never change (headers and trailers) and one part that might change (the data part described by the XML file). How can I be able to access the information in the XML file in my plug-in and use it for dissection of the data part?

There is currently no way to have dynamic dissection from any sort of configuration file, the colsest is asn2ws which can create C code from an ASN1 description with the aid of templates and configuration files. So you would have to write code from scratch to do that.
