the point of no return ...
using dumpcap as the capture child for Ethereal. dumpcap is a plain console application now, even for Win32 (so no WinMain, create_console and special piping stuff reguired). The undocumented command line option -Z will switch dumpcap into "child mode", using binary instead of plain text output messages to communicate with a parent Ethereal. Ethereal's main.c no longer needs to distinguish between child mode or not, so some simplifying here. capture_sync.c has to call dumpcap in a "hidden window" mode using CreateProcess instead of spawnvp, otherwise an uggly console window would appear. The handles created by _pipe doesn't seem to be inheritable for this function, using CreatePipe instead. The file capture_loop.c is only needed by dumpcap, removed from Ethereal link objects. Some debugging aid added and other minor cleanup done. svn path=/trunk/; revision=17256
