i understand completely, and expected to get a blaster reply; rather than your polite reply. i see you are a very clever fellow, and i asked you for a reason. updating wireshark regularly and manually is a very annoying necessity.
does this help at all to accomplish this?

You can use a Subversion client to download the source code from Wireshark's anonymous Subversion repository. The URL for the repository trunk is: http://anonsvn.wireshark.org/wireshark/trunk/.
See Section 4.11, “Subversion (SVN) client (optional)” on how to install a Subversion client.
For example, to check out using the command-line Subversion client, you would type:
$ svn checkout http://anonsvn.wireshark.org/wireshark/trunk wireshark
The checkout has to be only done once. This will copy all the sources of the latest version (including directories) from the server to your machine. This will take some time, depending on the speed of your internet connection.
i won't take up the text space to paste the entire process but
Checked out revision 38161.
i really appreciate all the work you have put into this script for us. this would be icing on the cake.
It keeps failing to update Giskismet and Aircrack, keeps saying
yet I tried running svn cleanup and it sayssvn: working copy '.' locked.
svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks
I tried purging aircrack, reinstalled it with apt-get install, and tried updating again and it gave me the same problem as beforesvn: '.' is not a working copy directory.

@clone, whenever wireshark gets updated, so do our repos and therefor my script will update it when it updated Backtrack.
@DaxxTrais it actually tells you to run "svn cleanup" have you tried that ?
I did, edited my previous post for clarity.
The first time I ran your script, version 0.7 I think I remember it updated Aircrack because it was mentioning something about a new build. However all subsequent attempts at updating result in the svn directory lock message, which cleanup wont resolve
changing disable_lua = true inside init.lua, and saving, resolves the popup when opening wireshark if this error should occur.
very neat, sir.
i just want to say i did fix it, svn clean worked i just had to use it in the right directories
