[mkgmap-dev] --tdbfile option (was: Re: how to qlandkarte or qlandkartegt)

From Robert Joop 8500547528183gmap at rainbow.in-berlin.de on Thu Aug 27 17:50:40 BST 2009

steve, the resources/help/en/options file states that the --tdbfile
makes mkgmap write a .tdb file.
but i always got a .tdb file, even though i never used this option.
is this option only necessary when one merges .img files, and
superfluous when processing .osm files?

carsten, thank you for your hints regarding qlandkarte!
once i got over this initial hurdle, qlandkartegt started making fun.
i might even use it to geotiff some scans of paper maps (as long the
islands i'm gonna visit the next weeks are flooded on the garmin :-)
