Use TShark.

tshark -r {capture file}

will read the capture file and write out summary lines of the sort that appear in the packet list pane of Wireshark.

tshark -V -r {capture file}

will read the capture file and write out packet details of the sort that appear in the packet detail pane of Wireshark.
