import subprocess

class TsharkCtrl():
    def __init__(self,):
    def run(self,NIC_LISTEN,FL_TRNAME,OPS_WR=None):
        if OPS_WR == None:
            tsharkCall = ["tshark","-i" ,NIC_LISTEN, "-w" + FL_TRNAME]
            tsharkProc = subprocess.Popen(tsharkCall,executable="C:/Program Files/Wireshark/tshark.exe")

You can use the code
Code: Select all

to find out methods of that object. You should check out kill() and terminate() especially.
