What is the best way to view data captured in packets with Ethereal?


What is the best way to view data captured in packets with Ethereal? Can data in packets be viewed via the command line?

I tried tethereal, put it gives basically the same output as tcpdump and doesnt show the actual data inside the packets.

well the best way is to surely just use ethereal.. it'll give you a HUGE amount of detail about each packet. am i missing something?
