[Snort-devel] Doubt in development

If you are reading the code:

-- you might start with fpEvalPacket() in src/fpdetect.c and dig in

If you are looking for output:

-- check the manual for config detection: debug* options
-- configure --enable-debug --enable-debug-msgs and export the flags of
interest from snort_debug.h


-- gdb snort

There is really no better way to get the info you need about the code than
to step through it with a debugger.

Have fun!
