[mkgmap-dev] Shouldn't both options --gmapi and --nsis imply --tdbfile?From Gerd Petermann gpetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com on Tue Feb 5 09:13:06 GMT 2019
Hi all, I still don't dare to change the option handling in mkgmap completely. My understanding is that we have two groups of users: - One large group uses mkgmap since long and has all kinds of scripts which expect exactly the current behaviour. Thus I consider backward compatibility very important. - One small group (the newbies) try to create a map on their own and those are lost with all the options needed to get a good map. I think those users would also not profit if we suddenly change all kinds of defaults because they will find even more confusing hints and howtos. Maybe there is someone who volunteers to create a small beginners guide? A very simple one woud be this: Recommended options to create a map for car routing with full address search: --gmapi --gmapsupp --nsis --index --split-name-index --bounds=bounds.zip --housenumbers --route --check-roundabouts --add-pois-to-areas --link-pois-to-ways --process-destination --process-exits Just reading Tickers comment it seems that we created almost the same list here, but I would not recommend to use --remove-ovm-work-files. In fact I thought about removing this option as it is likely to cause trouble when you try to compile the map in multiple steps. The default for --add-boundary-nodes-at-admin-boundaries is (and was) 2 since the merge into trunk.

Hi I think it is reasonable that mkgmap, when explicitly being used to generate GMAPSUPP.IMG doesn't generate PC files unless other options imply that a PC image is also wanted - it does take extra time and a lot of memory. Options --gmapi or --tdbfile imply PC files are wanted and should cause generation of PC indexes if --index is on. My thoughts on the default values of options: When new features are introduced, they should be OFF by default - experts who follow the development can turn them on if they want to experiment. A while later, when the feature has settled down and is thought to be generally good, the default should be changed to ON. Some candidates for now being ON by default --gmapsupp --index --location-autofill=is_in,nearest --route --add-pois-to-area --link-pois-to-ways --process-exits --process-destination --remove-ovm-work-files maybe also --check_roundabout*, but I'm not sure of the default values for these and the help text doesn't say About now would be the time for changing: --add-boundary-nodes-at-admin-boundaries= from 0 to 2 Regards Ticker On Mon, 2019-02-04 at 18:12 -0500, EthnicFood IsGreat wrote: > > > > Message: 1 > > Date: Sun, 03 Feb 2019 09:15:33 -0500 > > From: Greg Troxel <gdt at lexort.com> > > To: Gerd Petermann <GPetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com> > > Cc: "mkgmap-dev at lists.mkgmap.org.uk" < > > mkgmap-dev at lists.mkgmap.org.uk> > > Subject: Re: [mkgmap-dev] Shouldn't both options --gmapi and --nsis > > imply --tdbfile? > > > > > > Gerd Petermann <GPetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com> writes: > > > > > I never understood why adding option --gmapsupp suppresses the > > > creation of the pc index file(s).
