Subject: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Best way to handle a variable-length NULL-terminated string in a tvb
Actually, is there a function that will just get the length of said
string? I don't need to do anything with the string itself other than
add it to the proto_tree and of course increment my offset. I know I
could just g_free the string immediately after fetching it, but this
seems like it has a little overhead.
