[mkgmap-dev] Splitter changes double quotes to single quotes... anddisturbs mkgmap

Hi Attila,

I'm guessing the decision to use single quotes rather than double quotes 
was an arbitrary one; some source OSM files use single quotes too, and trying 
to preserve the source quoting style adds additional overhead. The real problem 
is that the data is not being escaped properly, however it looks like there 
was a fix for this made in r100 of the splitter. What version are you using?
