     [ https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-1029?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Johanna Amann updated BIT-1029:
    Resolution: Won't Fix
        Status: Closed  (was: Open)

I am closing this since there is no chance that we will make any progress on this on the medium to long term. The way that the print statement currently works in broctl will go away due to the deprecation of broccoli. It is still unclear how we will support that statement at all in the future - when/if this is implemented I am sure this will come up again.

> {{broctl}}'s print command can be very verbose for large tables. It would be nice if it could support at least the below two styles of commands, but ideally it could support any Bro Scripting Language expression.
