### how to get output like when using -z?

I have been using this script to automatically split a pcap file into single tcp streams:

for stream in $(tshark -r$1 -T fields -e tcp.stream | sort -n | uniq)
do
echo $stream tshark -r$1 -w $2/stream-$stream.cap -Y "tcp.stream==\$stream"
done


now, for each single capture file that represents a stream I would like to read it with the same format that you get when you follow a stream using -z, for example

tshark -r somefile.pcap -z "follow,http,ascii,172.18.0.6:57238,172.18.0.4:8081"


does some option that does this exist?
