2015-03-25Always use html2text.py for FAQ, improve outputPeter Wu2-9/+4
A recent commit broke compilation with Python 3. The original author of html2text.py is deceased and the fork has increased the number of files for this "simple" helper. The html2text.py script in this patch was rewritten and its output matches with lynx (except for a few newlines around lists). This means that indentation has been added for headings, paragraphs and lists. Also, since it was written from scratch, a new license could be chosen that matches Wireshark. Since now the in-tree html2text.py script provides nicer output, remove detection of the alternative programs (elinks, links). lynx/w3m is somehow still necessary for asciidoc though. (I also looked into reusing html2text.py for the release notes to replace asciidoc, but the --format=html output produces different output (HTML adds a ToC and section numbers). For now still require lynx for release notes) Tested with Python 2.6.6, 2.7.9, 3.2.6 and 3.4.3 under LC_ALL=C and LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 on Linux. Tested reading from stdin and file, writing to file, pipe and tty. Tested with cmake (Ninja) and autotools on Arch Linux x86_64. Test: # For each $PATH per python version, execute (with varying LC_ALL) help/faq.py -b | tools/html2text.py /dev/stdin | md5sum help/faq.py -b | tools/html2text.py | md5sum help/faq.py -b | tools/html2text.py help/faq.py -b | tools/html2text.py >/dev/null Change-Id: I6409450a3e6c8b010ca082251f9db7358b0cc2fd Reviewed-on: https://code.wireshark.org/review/7779 Petri-Dish: Peter Wu <peter@lekensteyn.nl> Tested-by: Petri Dish Buildbot <buildbot-no-reply@wireshark.org> Reviewed-by: Anders Broman <a.broman58@gmail.com>
2015-03-25faq: fix formatting, fix links, use HTML5Peter Wu1-171/+185
The "a:hover" styling on https://www.wireshark.org/faq.html is ugly as it is not a real link. This patch turns questions into clickable links (focusing at the anchor) and converts from XHTML syntax to HTML5. Dead links have been updated and other links have been converted to https if available. The result passes the HTML5 validation at https://validator.nu.

2007-11-24This patch adds (ten) temporary coloring rules which will only live until ↵Sake Blok1-2/+5
Wireshark is quit. Temporary coloring filters can be set by: - pressing <ctrl>-<digit> will create a conversation coloring filter based on the addresses of the currently selected packet (order TCP/UDP/IP/Ethernet) This can also be achieved from the "View|Colorize Conversation" menu. - Rightclicking on a packet in the packet-list will give the option to "Colorize Conversation" just as "Conversation Filter" does. - Rightclicking on an item in the packet-detail-list will give the option to "Colorize with filter" which works similar to "Apply as filter" Temporary filters can be cleared from the same menus or by pressing <ctrl>-<space>. This patch also adds an item to the above mentioned menu's to add a permanent color filter in the same way. The colors for the temporary coloring rules are now hardcoded as I do not know how to change the color of menu-items and therefore I chose to use icons to show the actual color of each of the ten temporary coloring rules. Is it at all possible to have different menu items in different colors? One other way of solving this is to recreate the icons on the fly after changing the colors. I will have a look into that once it is clear whether I can use different colors within the menu structure. svn path=/trunk/; revision=23560
