About a year ago I wrote a Wireshark protocol dissector in Lua.
You might find it helpful (BSD licensed):
When I was writing it I had a hard time finding good up-to-date documention on
the Lua Wireshark API (I hope that has changed since then).
It even contains a simple lexer & parser since the protocol it dissects uses a
text file to describe the different message formats (similar to Google's
Protocol Buffers) that each UDP packet can contain.
