[Snort-devel] Multirule inspection engine

The Wu manber and most multi-pattern search engines find all occurrences of
patterns. However, remember snort only logs one event per packet.  So, we
queue up all of the occurrences, and select one. Usually the longest content
that matches is considered the most significant and accurate. Someday we'll
log multiple packets.

The engine (based on wu manber algorithm) finds all the occurrences of a
pattern in a packet or the first one?
