We are working on merging the Modbus at this moment. I think merging Modbus
would not take too long as the code size of it is not that big.
Also in case that you want to build your own analyzer in binpac, here is
some sample codes:
FYI, binpac can easily handle application layer protocol directly over TCP
or UDP. But with complex protocol which includes session layer or
presentation layer, u may need to do some modifications on Bro's code to
integrate binpac code.
Hope this help.
