Introducing Packet Dump Decode 0.1

Packet Dump Decode (pdd) is a simple convenient GUI wrapper around the
Wireshark/Ethereal tools to convert packet hexdumps into well
formatted xml containing the decoded protocols and protocol contents

Using pdd, you just need to copy-paste the hexdump into pdd and hit
the "Decode" button.

NOTE: pdd is only a wrapper around the Wireshark/Ethereal tools and
hence needs either (but at least one) to be already installed.

Personal Note:
As a networking software developer, I work with packet hexdumps
frequently using the Wireshark tools to analyze them - these tools
have existed in Wireshark (and earlier Ethereal) for a very long time;
the only "value-add" pdd has is that it improves my work flow
