Ethereal is really kick ass 95% of the time.
For the other 5%, I wish:
- I could cut and paste (big PITA)
- I could save as text
- I could easily drop in new protocol specifications without writing
I'm sufficiently not-sharp that I'm willing to believe that Ethereal *does*
all of this and I just don't know about it - anyone care to inform me?
