Hex dump into Wireshark or similiar

Hi Guy's I am trying to find a way of importing the raw hex data from a router dump into a wireshark trace for example. I have had a look at the text2pcap pages and cant seem to work it out.

Does anyone have any expierence in this ? If it requires format changes whats the best way of doing this script wise ?

I have included a PDU Hex dump below,

Personally, I'd rather do it in C.

These guys had a lot of fun with this: [bash] ASCII to HEX and hex to ascii

I found printf ways to unpack ascii to hex and decimal to hex, and 'echo -e' can do hex to ascii:
$ printf '%x\n' '?'
$ printf '%x\n' 32  
$ echo -e "\x3f"'

This xxd command does both: Man Page for xxd (linux Section 1) - The UNIX and Linux Forums

To get specific, one needs to know the layout of the dumped router data. Then you need to isolate the hex columns, perhaps putting them into an array. Now, you can fetch them out of the array and convert them to your target form, like dotted decimal for IP addresses.
