[mkgmap-dev] [Patch] Faster BoundaryGrid

From WanMil wmgcnfg at web.de on Thu May 3 21:12:14 BST 2012

Hi Gerd,

I also prefer solution 1.

> simply stop searching if the wanted bnd file is not found instead of
> traveling through thousends of entries.
> We can alarm the user when we find a directory structure within the zip.
> 2) We save the list that is created in LocationHook.init() and use it as a
> parm for the BoundaryGrid
> constructor.
> I'd prefer option 1, what do you think?
