I need to make a program that makes use of information that Wireshark collects from the network. Is there a way to get that information from Wireshark and into the program?

The log files perhaps? strange that you haven't mentioned trying it – barlop Mar 6 '11 at 0:44
Standard log files on just about any OS doesn't provide low level information about the network, especially at the packet level. – Deleted Account Mar 6 '11 at 1:34

Use WinPcap on Windows or tcpdump on Linux.
