Jeff Morriss 3773a7561c Add command-line argument to request the version to a number of the utilities.
In some cases "-v" was already used so "-V" is the option.
Note that the version information in these utilities is much shorter than what
is presented by the big programs.

Guy Harris 6db77b000f Allow wtap_read() and wtap_seek_read() to return records other than packets.
Add a "record type" field to "struct wtap_pkthdr"; currently, it can be
REC_TYPE_PACKET, for a record containing a packet, or
REC_TYPE_FILE_TYPE_SPECIFIC, for records containing file-type-specific

Modify code that reads packets to be able to handle non-packet records,
even if that just means ignoring them.

Rename some routines to indicate that they handle more than just

We don't yet have any libwiretap code that supplies records other than
REC_TYPE_PACKET or that supporting writing records other than
REC_TYPE_PACKET, or any code to support plugins for handling
REC_TYPE_FILE_TYPE_SPECIFIC records; this is just the first step for bug

Guy Harris a344c9736e Revert "Allow wtap_read() and wtap_seek_read() to return non-packet records."
This reverts commit c0c480d08c.

A better way to do this is to have the record type be part of struct wtap_pkthdr; that keeps the metadata for the record together and requires fewer API changes.  That is in-progress.

Guy Harris c0c480d08c Allow wtap_read() and wtap_seek_read() to return non-packet records.
This is the first step towards implementing the mechanisms requestd in
bug 8590; currently, we don't return any records other than packet
records from libwiretap, and just ignore non-packet records in the rest
of Wireshark, but this at least gets the ball rolling.

Michael Mann 1abeb277f5 Refactor Wiretap
Start of refactoring Wiretap and breaking structures down into "generally useful fields for dissection" and "capture specific". Since this in intended as a "base" for Wiretap and Filetap, the "wft" prefix is used for "common" functionality.

The "architectural" changes can be found in cfile.h, wtap.h, wtap-int.h and (new file) wftap-int.h. Most of the other (painstaking) changes were really just the result of compiling those new architecture changes.

From me:

Add the ability to reset symbol exports via ws_symbol_export.h's include
guard and do so in capinfos.c and editcap.c. We include ws_symbol_export.h
in over 200 files so it didn't seem to make sense to remove its include

form of corruption/bogosity in a file, including in a file header as
well as in records in the file.  Change the error message
wtap_strerror() returns for it to reflect that.

Use it for some file header problems for which it wasn't already being
used - WTAP_ERR_UNSUPPORTED shouldn't be used for that, it should only
be used for files that we have no reason to believe are invalid but that
have a version number we don't know about or some other
non-link-layer-encapsulation-type value we don't know about.

Jeff Morriss bf95c7b5e4 Fix :
getopt() can/should normally be found in unistd.h, so:

- When testing for getopt(), define that we HAVE_GETOPT instead of
  HAVE_GETOPT_H (to avoid confusion).
- Don't attempt to include getopt.h: not all OS's have it (for example,
  Solaris 9 does not).
- (All the places which need getopt already include unistd.h (if we have it).)

If this breaks things on some OS, we might need (a real) HAVE_GETOPT_H check.
