I am developing a customisation for Wireshark and I need to make a listener for it to work.

What is the best way to do this?

From what I have read online so far it's much easier to do in Lua but I am unsure as to how to allow my existing code to take the output from a Lua script or even how to get started with Lua in this case.

If this is easier how would I go about embedding Lua scripts into my existing C++ code and if it is not easier how would I go about doing this using C++ and C?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance!
