[mkgmap-dev] Commit: r1229: Added an option to create the mdx and mdr files.

From svn commit svn at mkgmap.org.uk on Thu Sep 24 13:16:48 BST 2009

Version 1229 was commited by steve on 2009-09-24 13:16:48 +0100 (Thu, 24 Sep 2009) 

Added an option to create the mdx and mdr files.

Use the --index option.  This will create two files, named osmmap.mdx and osmmap_mdr.img by
default.  The name is controlled by the --overview-mapname option and the default value of that
option has been changed to osmmap from 63240000 so the tdbfile and overmap name will also
now be osmmap.tdb and osmmap.img by default.

You should also give a family-id option as I believe it must be installed under a map family.

What's there?
The mdx file is complete - it will contain an entry for each map on the command line.  You can as normal
give .img or .osm files or a mixture of both.

The mdr also contains entries for each map, but is otherwise empty. The maximum you will see is that
the find button in mapsource should be enabled.  Clicking find should just show no entries without

If you used family-id=909 something like the following would be needed to install on windows.  Note the
IDX and MDR keys and also that they are at the family level (like the typ file) and not at the product level.
