I have a field which has the following properties:

offset_in_bits: 6112
size_in_bits: 51

This means I need to i need to add the field in the following way:

pf_my_field = ProtoField.uint64(
    "my_protocol.my_field", "my_field",

The issue is that it doesn't work. the mask only works for the first 32 bits, but ignores the mask of the other 32. is this a bug? or am I missing something? note: I use masking for a lot of 32 bits or smaller fields and didn't have this kind of issue.

The page describes how to handle 64-bit integers in LUA.

So a 64-bit value can be specified with UInt64. For example: UInt64(0xFFFFFFFF, 0x7FFFF).
