RE: [Ethereal-dev] [PATCH] -G option & doc/dfilter... change to i nclude hfinfo->blurb
(I'm continuing this thread here in ethereal-doc to discuss the
aspects of the -G option postprocessing and the ways to setup the
environment to test it).

I'm slightly confused about dfilter2sgml. It seems that this script
is never called by either Makefile (ethereal or ethereal-doc); also there
to be an obsolete (non-purged) version eproto2sgml in ethereal-doc.
Also, the question of what to do about the 2 copies of dfilter2sgml

So, for testing of my changes to dfilter2sgml I just did a manual
ethereal -G | ./dfilter2sgml sgml.doc.template >
in the ethereal-doc tree, and then performed a make.

Some changes were needed - both for the -G accomodation,
and also for some newer entries' apostrophy symbols in the protocol name
(DOCSIS stuff).

Here is a tested patch against ethereal-doc/dfilter2sgml [attached]; would
like a patch on filter-fileds.sgml (built from the cvs ethereal version -G
