Different vendors have different sets of vendor specific commands which Wireshark does not parse at the moment. I'm new in Wireshark and I'm trying to understand on what it would take to add such support for single or maybe more known vendor specific commands sets. Could someone say if there is a way to add vendor specific parser in some modular way? Could you point to the place in the code where should I start looking?

The Bluetooth HCI command dissector has a vendor_dissector_table ("bthci_cmd.vendor") and hci_vendor_table ("bluetooth.vendor"), so I recon this to be possible. Any of these would be the tables to register your vendor specific dissector to.

Thanks for pointers. I even found Intel and Broadcom handlers! :)
